The silver birches on top of our nephew's hill, Mondovi, WI April 23 2011

This is a blend of two images. One was moving the camera up and down on a long exposure. The other was a normal one. I duplicated the final blend and added a touch of poster edge. With a mask on the total edge I filled it with black and then painted back in the main white and grey trunks so that it was just them that held on to the poster edge.

Exif: F Number: 25, Exposure Bias Value: 2.00, ExposureTime: 1/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 35.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300
