Looks like something the Ancients built in Stargate! I like the depth in the shot. HDR a bit much - where did the light come from? Great shot though. Might have to watch SG-1 now!

Amazing shot.  What lens did you use?
Used a 17mm tse at f4 for the stars and f7.1 for the foreground with brighter light. This is a crop from a panorama that I did that morning. The main flaw is  that the TSE is that sharp that stars are pin points and loose colour. I will try again with a fog filter on a different lens (note that the 17 tse doesn't accept filters - easily)

A recent one, Canon 5DIII + Zeiss 50MP. Still amazes me the depth of field considering it was shot at F/2

It looks like you were pointing the camera downwards from a height. That's a bit like using a tilt and shift, which is why you were able to get more apparent DoF.

I was gonna say something similar; you can see what is out of focus and where the focus plane is when you look closely, but, on first glance you don't notice them and it seems to have endless depth. Saw this with another photo where I guy had used a T/S lens to get the entire scene in focus, but it made it seem flat. When someone add a little photoshop T/S effect to it, the scene came to life

It could be the explanation, at least partially because i'm not sure I was pointing the camera downwards. It was indeed taken higher than ground level but as far as I remember the camera was more or less parallel to the ground level, on a tripod, in other words, the sensor plane was not that much tilted.  I think it can also be due to the exceptional detail gathered by the Zeiss lens even fully open. In the original you can see the closer parts are not that much sharp as the further ones but anyway it surprised me how much detail the lens managed to capture fully open. The one thing I dont remember is wether I set focus to infinity or on some of the people in the middle ground.

By the way, there are no photoshop effects, pretty much what came out of camera.

It doesn't take much of a tilt, after all, the maximum tilt is 8 degrees on most TS lenses and typically only 1 or 2 degrees is used. While it is slightly different for a normal lens and tilting the whole camera, the fact that you are getting a significant amount of the ground level, suggests the sensor plane wasn't exactly perpendicular. Also, regardless of how good the resolution of a lens is, you can't overcome the laws of physics.
