Connecticut photographer Stephen Wilkes is doing something unique with his photos: he creates a photo with both day and night scenes of the same site, making a stunning mix.
As this blog explains, Wilkes took hundreds of photographs over the span of a day (some shots took up to 15 hours), carefully adjusting the shutter to allow for proper exposure as the sun set. To create the images below, Wilkes blends about 50 images into one incredible large-format panoramic.

Another blog quotes Wilkes saying that during his shoots he loves capturing fleeting moments, and scanning "every inch of this enormous frame using extreme wide angle perspectives but within that context you can read body language and gesture."
What do you think of his Day Into Night series?
