This is a combination of two handheld shots: one shot at 1/30 (to expose for the foreground) and one shot at 1/320 (to expose for the sky). These were then aligned in Photoshop and merged using a mask (then adjusted using a variety of masked Curves, Channel Mixer layers, and so on). And technicalities aside, this is probably one of my favourite shots in recent weeks - there's just something about the light that I really like.

Oh, and this is definitely one that looks better with the black theme.
