Double Arch, located in Utah's Arches National Park, under the night sky. Best viewed in the lightbox.

This is a tweaked version of one of my all-time favorite shots, after getting some good feedback over at NPN. Compared to the original version, I've fixed some hotspots with the light painting, lowered the arches' exposure, and made them warmer and more magenta.

This was created via light painting with an LED flashlight, and two manually blended exposures (primarily due to not having the right camera body and flashlight gels to do it in a single exposure.)

Sky exposure:
30 sec, f/2.8, ISO 3200, 4200K WB

Rock exposure:
7 min, f/4, ISO 400, 6500K WB

Hit #1! Obligatory screenshot.
