**HOW IT WAS DONE:**
I could very well be incorrect with this. But I believe the way the image was taken was usual star photography. tripod, camera, intv timer. I believe this shot is at 24mm, fully zoomed. This would allow a full view of the spiralization of the stars, (the foreground is a single image not zoomed in.) *I believe the way the stars were captured, and for everyone asking, no, I don’t think he turned his lens 0.025mm every picture, but rather just zoomed in every single shot. The reflection of the stars is the finished, compiled, 300image sky reversed and superposed within the lake.
Yes. A lot of photoshop had to be done and with high skill, but then again, the original image was somewhere around 6800px wide, and is now only 1000. This allows for pixelation and makes the image seem flawless. And he most likely filtered the sky for blur, and mixed in an original shot of the smokey water with a multiply layer or screen. With a slight vingette, (aperture?)
But in the end, its a great shot.
