This one is taken in the busy city of Brisbane, of the Story Bridge at night with the epic starry sky burning bright above. This is 2 exposures merged into the one frame. The image for the sky was taken at an extremely high ISO 6400, f4 for 40 secs with the Canon 5DMKII. The second exposure for the foreground was taken at ISO 200, f/11 for 60 seconds. Both images were shot in RAW and imported into Lightroom 4 for the initial RAW conversion adjustments, then moved into Photoshop CS4 for the layer mask merge and final touches.
