A wonderful picture! even if the main subject seems to be the fence, it's the word "freedom" that cames to my mind when I look at this photo! :meditation:

The old version was just too awesome and kept getting stolen. I don't blame him for keeping it to himself.

For a 7second exposure this is quite astonishing and without a polirizing filter.
Your use of colour even although you say it was processed a bit it still looks breathtaking.
The depth of field together with the lights flickering in the distance makes you just want to reach further into the picture.
Its a pitty though that such places needs to be enclosed by fences...
Good too see some South African waterscapes photos here on DA. :D
