I like this shot. It has a frozen in time quality to it despite it fairly obviously being a long exposure. MOst pictures at night like this have noticeable star trails that give a sense of motion and time passage. It has good color variation in the clouds, and the water reflection is very clear. It must have been a very still and quiet night.
FOr me, the tree on the left is almost distractingly bright but it is't overexposed or blown out. I also like how the reflected glow in the water almost seems to be coming from Under water. If it were me I would be tempted to crop the picture down some to remove some of the tree on the left. Or if I were confident in my ability, use burn to darken it a tad.
What do you think?

I absolutely love how well the colors are blended in with each other in the sky. Blue, grey, magenta, green, and lavender work together to create a fabulous dark sky. I also noticed how these colors are blended in together in the water of the lake. It's like all these colors in the sky are reflected from the water, that the light bounces off the surface of the lake water. Despite the blended colors, the sky appears to be dark, but there is a little hint of sunlight in the sky. A very beautiful project, I simply love this. Awesome!

Ah.... That ambience. Reminds me of when I used to grab a chair and sit and lay down in my backyard and relax. No troubles could hurt me.
