OK...I only entered this challenge because I was wanting to figure out things. I'd never tried exposing for 30 secs, so I wanted to see what it was like. Turned out the sky was giving me pretty wierd clouds and I got this.
What I did in PP:
Adjusted contrast, saturation, levels. Then I flattened, NI and USM...There you go.
I don't really expect much as this wasn't really a planned out shoot. Any commets are really welcome!!! Thank you all!!!

Yahoooooo! 19th place is really unexpected and uplifting!

Grett job. I love how the trees are still sharp after 30 seconds. Must have been a very still evening.

Soothing image of the clouds. The only distractino for me with the image is the color of the trees on the left. Still a nice image though, giving it a bump up.

Beautiful sky..

This cloud looks like water in the sky. Amazing really. Would be stronger if the the trees were brighter--but that was probably impossible to do.

wow, very nice, if only the sky could look like this more often!

Must have been a very still night to get such nice detail in the foreground. Nice color processing that makes an interesting composition. The longer exposure time nicely shows movement of the clouds.

I love the look long exposures gives to clouds and this is the best cloud pic in the challenge - and a nice silhouette of the trees in the foreground as well

the color is mesmerizing and the soft rolling clouds enchanting. A beautifully executed shot. If I had one criticism it would be the right side of the photo could be a bit lighter.

Very original capture. Wonder if there would be a way to extend the expsoure and provide some detail on the nearby trees?
