This is a combination of two exposures, one exposed for the foreground (1/30s), and another for the sky (1/200s). These were subsequently merged in Photoshop after which the image was converted to black and white (using the Channel Mixer) then toned using the Selective Color tool. And beyond that I don't have too much more to say about this one other than that I totally failed to come up with a title. So, if you have any suggestions, please let me know.

And if you read through my last entry, just ignore the next bit as I'm repeating myself ...
