This was an experiment. I was using a 9-18mm lens which I zoomed in and out during the exposure to see what the effect would be. It would have probably worked better with a lens that had a greater lower and upper zoom though. What do you think?
Incredible, you have two different layers at the foreground, and the sky appears to be unaffected, the contrast between the two colors is incredible, but the most amazing thing about this shot is the lead lines, they are definite, leading you into the shot, but you get to stop every inch or so and look as some of the detail below the lines..
Masterpiece and definitely an exceptional piece of work !!
