(Semi-) Pro Equipment - special rules; read carefully!

Challenge #5 in the Who Knows... series. Hosted by blosshapperter.
Challenge has finished
This is the complementary of the standard equipment series. Get out your full formats or even middle formats and show us money-starved how hopelessly we fail with our standard equipment. This challenge is post processing restricted still - but I will not check for it. Just be nice to your colleagues and don't cheat! The next challenge is without post processing restrictions. You might be interested to put in with and without post in both challenges. You might be tempted to put in a link to the other into the description field... This is a 'beginners challenge' hoping to attract some pros showing us how to do it right. We want to learn - please comment the pictures! Please be creative!

10th place
Long time exposure from Tripod Manfrotto 055B (200€?) with ball-head using D800 (3000€) and any 24mm at high aperture (here 1.4/24 at 1800€) to get long exposure time. Processed by lightroom adding contrast and "Dynamik" as it's called in german. Manual exposure if I remember right. Locked focus. Shot raw, developed in LR.
