Just reposting after a really annoying early Dislike...

This is a picture I took in August, If you like my work, visit my Facebook page and support me with a LIKE :)

My first Milky Way picture so I hope some feedback from you.
I shot in the South Alps (Trièves region) during a very clear night. I had to drive to really small remote roads to avoid having any light pollution that could hide the stars and the Milky Way.
I used my tripod, pushed the ISO setting almost to the max (ISO 4000 on my Canon 5D MarkII) and stick to a 30 sec exposure (a longer exposure would make the stars look like rice grains because of the Earth rotation. I made a much longer exposure to get some light on the mountains as the darkness was total (I couldn't even look through my ViewFinder!).
I hope you'll like it!
Please give me some feedback on the colors as I'm having problems setting up my Color Profile on my Mac so how I see this picture on my computer is probably not the same than how you see it.
