Milky Way arc over Palouse Falls in Washington State

This is a 6 shot panorama of Palouse Falls JUST before the moonrise (a tiny crescent moon at that, its glow is seen just above and to the right of the falls). I had no method of light painting that morning and have always been disappointed with the result when I have, thus, a relatively noisy image. I've wanted to take this shot since I first fell in love with night shooting a few years back after getting to know the incredible work of Ben Canales (CHECK HIM OUT!). On this morning, it was so dark that you could barely make out the falls with the naked eye, although you could easily see the Milky Way. The funny thing about Palouse Falls for me, is that I've NEVER seen it in the daylight. Someday I will return for a sunset. Thanks for looking, I appreciate any feedback offered.
