What a beautiful piece of photomanipulation. I like the way the color fades out near the bottom of the road; but when it fades in the color is absolutely phenomenal. Even without the milky way at the top you would have had a top notch photo. I really like your idea here, but I think you might need to fade more gradually into the milky way or blend it in a little bit more. Utterly fantastic rhythm, wonderful idea and composition. The way the road goes into the distance, taking your eye with it is perfect. Keep up the great work!
