Thanks! Yes I did use a wideangle. For this image I actually used two different exposures (digital) and blended them together in photoshop. The effect is similar to using a neutral-density filter, to brighten up the darker foreground. The top exposure was 1/160 sec at f 6.3. The bottom (foreground) exposure was 1/90 sec at f 5.0.
