    Title or Location: Leatherhead Theatre
    I am a professional theatre photographer. This was taken during the dress rehearsal for a dance show for a local dance company. The lighting was set and I had no control over it. I had to set the camera to suit the conditions. There was no flash and it was all set in the camera. I set the camera to F4 250th iso5000. I have a decent camera so I wasn't worried about the high iso. I followed the dancer and when she went for the move I was set to capture it.

I went looking for an eastern facing foreground knowing that the Milky Way core would be rising at around 10pm from the east, leaving me few options where light pollution wouldn't be an issue. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too harsh at vic point. I loved the foreground and the lightning in the distance on the horizon, and the satellite creaping in was another unexpected surprise with th
