    hello, I have been questioning this for a while now and have not really ventured far to find the answer and Im wondering if anyone can help me with answering this. So in the link below the quality is very professional and I am wondering either is it the lens and camera with post production work or all post production work to get the look of this type of image? any help is much appreciated! thanks!

    With that size it could be any lens or camera.

    This is a lot of post production work.

    looks like HDR to me, which is a series of different exposures combined, any camera /lens can do this but the PP is down to you and software capable of merging the shots. H

    I agree with above, that could be any camera... just lots of post processing.

    It looks like light painting to me but it could well be HDR, plus a lot of post production work in an image editor.

    There are 20 different ways it could have been post processed and there is no way to tell what software was used because all the EXIF data is gone.

    Visit www.hdrsoft.com for HDR software.
    www.topazlabs.com for tone mapping and other software
    www.adobe.com www.corel.com www.GIMP.org for image editing software.
