Stars through the Clouds

The answer is sort of. When you are desperate enough, you can take long exposures of the sky to capture the stars shining through small breaks in the clouds. The photo above is the unaltered version. Below is the version I leveled in Photoshop.

  6. Thanks folks. It’s funny what long exposure photography can reveal. I was particularly surprised how much detail was there once I worked with the levels.
