Thanks Vishal!  

It is indeed:

Manfrotto 055XPROB / Wimberley Tripod Head Version 2
Nikon D700 - 200-400mm AF-S VR F/4.0G
ISO1600
manual white balance
F/4.0
200mm
1/13sec
In camera noise reduction - high
In camera long exposure noise reduction - on

The D700 is a fantastic camera - if you ace the exposure on high ISO shots even ISO3200 is quite clean. The 200-400mm VR lens is great in lower light too - open it up to F/4.0 and the results are still super.

And the Wimberley Tripod Head is an absolute must when using a heavy/large camera and lens combination on a tripod. Because the lens can pivot around its centre - it is completely balanced and has no tendency to tip forwards or backwards. The Wimberley is absolutely worth its money.

I did also use Topaz Denoise 5 - but only on the RAW light noise reduction preset (with some tweaks to sharpening settings).

Quoting ThierryD (Thread starter):
Wow effect and this photo certainly deserves more views:

That is a superb image.

Thanks for the nice words and PC guys! (sorry for chiming in so late, just noticed this thread)

Somebody asked about my lens and settings for the shot in the photo comments, maybe more appropriate to reply here than rate one's own photo  

Canon 1D mk2
Canon 100-400
1/640s, f/11 and ISO1000
+some liquid image stabilizer   (it was midsummers eve in Finland)

Cheers,
Janne

Fire is not very predictable, and it's really dangerous. Where I live, we tend to have to deal with these kinds of huge wildfires each year (some caused by natural events, lightning strikes, some by arson).

And where I previously worked - I was exposed a lot more to the organisational side of fighting those fires. It is scary just how fast they can move. A fire that seems a long distance away can roar up a valley at lightning speed.

You become acutely aware of the consequences of these fires, sadly. And it shouldn't need to be said, but:

Everyone else, please don't try to emulate that photo above!

If my guess is correct then the inverted F-18 is above some clouds/mist & the background is the mountain right ?

What is nice is getting sharp photos in low light, and then not having to spend hours trying to Photoshop the noise away. I can concentrate on taking a nice photo, rather than Photoshop trickery.

I'll see what I can do - these are at least a bit easier now that it is only camera skill needed, not noise-removal skill in Photoshop.
