"Time is Relevant"

The farm house is on borrowed time and will soon collapse, while the starlight above it began its journey billions of years ago. I don't know about you, but that is a bit difficult for me to wrap my head around.

This is the third version of this image posted here because of a learning curve that adds a third dimension of time - the time it took to process an image I knew was there. When I first opened this scene on my computer, I knew my learning curve needed an adjustment. In the first image, I used a single image and pretty much got the house and foreground I was hoping for .... but the stars were lacking. For the second version, I found a way to stack images to get the detail in the stars that I wanted to see .... but I lost detail in the house and ground. For this version, I blended the previous two images to produce the detail I believe necessary to make this photo match the passion I felt during the actual photo shoot.

Was it worth the effort? It's always worth the effort.
