It was in the mid thirties. Had a beautiful day before in the fifties. It was a nice night to bundle up and sleep under the stars(in a tent ).

Very nicely photographed - rich colors and lovely balance. You must have had the "anti-shake" turned on, so your shivering would not affect the clarity of the picture!!

That's some picture! Did you use a graduated ND filter to achieve such perfect exposure in both sky and water? I never seem to get as good balance in similar situations - would love to know how you managed it. Well done!

Nicely done to not blow out the skies, but still keep the tents in light. I went out Sunday and was having problems with blowing out the clouds. Realized later that I had left the camera on ISO800. Argghhhhh!!!! Quickly changed that.

OK guys first let me say that I did not keep the original. What I did was post process in PS6. The sky was too light. The tents and grass were not quite bright enough and the water/ reflection was darker still. The first thing I did was select the sky and adjust it for levels. Next I did the same with the water. Last was to do the same with the middle area. I feel like a cheat but hey thats what image making is all about.
Graduated neutral density would have been a good way to achieve the same basic thing. HDR processing should also have similar results.
Thanks for the positive comments. Here is a similar pic from the same group.

Nicely done! It matters not how you did it but the end result is very pleasing to the eye.
