It's quite amazing how much different a scene can look after the sun
goes down, and a long exposure can often turn it into something
absolutely magical. Today's picture is an excellent example.
The bright reflections on the water, the smoke wafting away from the
smokestacks and the obvious movement of the clouds contrast
dramatically with the static silhouette of the church, creating a
photograph that is as dynamic and intriguing as it is beautiful.
What an outstanding image, expertly captured by photographer John

Mr. Nyberg's long exposure gives this image an otherworldly
atmosphere. Choosing the dark of night to create this image presents
us with a totally different perspective on what, in daylight, might
have been an uncomfortable mixing of the industrial and the
spiritual. Great job, John!

We're always in such a hurry. Sometimes, patience is well rewarded -
as in this beautiful photo by John Nyberg. That long exposure really
made this shot a real work of art.
