I just stumbled on this, which somehow I missed before. It's very beautiful. The tonalities you have generated here, the purity of the steely blue, are very evocative. I'd wish the sun reflection weren't touching the bottom of the frame, and I might try to mute the slightly more greenish cast in the glare upper right, but that's about it. First-rate shot, and belated congrats from me to you!

This has a magical quality to it. Love the gray blue night sky colors. The reflection of the moon along with the silhouette on the dock - it looks like a book jacket!!

a nice image, reflecting what it feels like to be calm instead of a literal reflection. i don't know if this was intentional, but the image feels blurred. love the quality of blue, and the lighting.

Wow, Very nice, Love this shot. Too bad you have that sun spot there. It would be dead on without that.

Very nice sceen. It makes me want to return to my parents lake cabin. I would be interested in how you metered for this shot and set your exposure which I consider excellent.

Beautiful and rich. Shazam! This one's on the money. How did you make the moon look like the sun? It's mysterious and inviting. What a wonderful place to relax. You are too good for this site. You obviously know how to handle your equipment. 10 - 10 - 10!
