Hi Michael,
Wow,the sky is incredible! How'd you create this image? #8480314

Michael J. Bandy March 25, 2010

Used a couple of graduated ND filters and a long exposure with a very narrow F-stop. Fired a hotshoe flash multiple times at the sculpture like item in the water. #8480376

Thank you.
I have a few more questions, hope you don't mind? (Please understand that I'm a real beginner at photography)

Are you referring to filters that attaches to the lens or a photo editing filter?

When you say long exposure; Are you referring to a few seconds or ?

Would you mind telling me what lens you used?

Michael, this is truly a great image. Thanks for sharing.
