No, actually I did not take that picture but I know how its done.

There's something more that's happened here - to get these beams of light so perfectly, just leaving the shutter open wouldn't work. You'd end up with a ring of light, not straight beams.

my only other guess would be sport mode multi shot.

but if you look at the gate .. he used a flash as well.

now if the flash is used it would take some of the beam light away .. if the flash flickered a couple of times while the shutter was open it would have that effect.

Yea but no where near that accuracy. There's something else missing here...

Here it is...

He says they do this once a year and leave the light static to get a shot like this...

I knew a simple open shutter wouldn't do this...

ah cool .. still long exposure but was photoshoped

Deep 3.2TL 01-26-2009 12:31 PM

He says he did not photoshop...

"- Photoshopped? No, not really. I 'burned' the lighthouse lens a bit because, well, shooting into a beacon of light for two minutes tends to wash things out. I also desaturated the moon a bit in the middle, where it created a light blue artifact. Just little image fixes - otherwise this is really how the lighthouse looks (which is cool, which is why I drove down to see it)"

from the above link at flickr...

if he used burn effect on the light beacon to clear washing out then I would call that "yes"

I'd say no - he didn't use it to create the beams of light, he just used it to clean up the center of the lighthouse because it was too hot...
