    This is very interesting... I'm kind of expecting Captain Picard, Data, and Will Riker to make an appearance, though.

    I agree, very interesting. But I was thinking Captain Kirk and Spock.

    Thank you very much for the comments everyone !

    Here are the main stages on how the photo was made:

    In-camera
    1-The vertical streaks in the photo where made in the field using
    the in-camera's double exposure feature, most DSLR camera's have this
    feature. I took one photo of the forest handheld and still (use the slowest
    shutter speed possible) lens VR can help with this.

    I then took a second photo and as I pressed the shutter button down
    I moved the camera downward fast to create motion blur. The camera
    then combines the two photos together using its firmware.

    Editing (Nikon Capture NX2 software)
    2-Orton-effect was added to give the photo a dream like look.

    3-The photo was converted to black and white.

    4-I dodge (lightened) in all the lights on the (motion blur) streaks.

    5-The blue tint was added last by moving the WB (white balance) slider
    to a very cold setting this gives the photo the night look.

    EXIF data

    -Nikon D80/Nikkor 18-200mmVR
    -1/25 second @ f/8
    -31mm
    -ISO 100
    -Ev -1 1/3
    -Vr ON

    Take care,
    Dwayne Oakes

    I love the play here Dwayne and especially like the specular light on the trees themselves.
