Technical stuff:

Canon 1D Mark II, 24-70mm f/2.8 at 24mm and f/18. 8 second exposure. ISO 100. (filtering not recorded, likely a polarizer)

Processed with Lightroom 4: Moderate contrast enhancement, dust spot removal and some clever tweaking to hide some drops of water on the lens (one removed by cropping, see if you can “spot” the other spot.)
