Possibly a slight stretch for the theme, but others do THAT, why shouldn't I. Yes it was a 25 second exposure that is made evident by the lines left by the aircraft taking off and landing at Brisbane Airport across Hayes Inlet. It was a mildly interesting shot when I first processed it, I had intended to use it for this theme then, but being the type of person who believes that TOO MUCH of anything is never enough! I decided to have a crack at the Jeff Perry Psuedo HDR Effect, which not only brought out these magnificent colours (No it didn't look like that - IT WAS BLACK) but it also showed another Distant light trail that I had not seen with my own eyes nor was it visible in normal processing, I am learning to love the unexpected. It is just above the plane taking off to the left and I saw NOTHING! I also adore the colour and hue taken on by the dust covered bluestone of the breakwater. (Bridge construction has covered a lot of this area in fine dust but rain will disperse it with time - another part of the theme).
