Ok, I have to ask the question. It took more than white balance to get that shot. You obviously had the lens stopped down to minimum as evidenced by the rays radiated out from the sun. Those are cause by the iris leaves. The real question is how did you darken the picture? Did you use a neutral density filter?

I think it is a great shot and I think everyone could benefit from learning exactly how you did it.

hi everyone.. thanks for your comments. i appreciate it.

cal, my powershot G5 has a built in ND filter so i used that with F8@1/2000th(max. capabilities of the camera).
without the ND filter this wouldn't have worked.

this is exactly how it came out. i was purposely trying to simulate moonlight.

thanks again everyone.

I'm so glad Cal mentioned the filter and you confirmed the use of it. This is something I'd like to try and it never dawned on me that I'd have to use my ND filter.

I agree with the above. This is a very interesting look. Literally 'cool'.
