    I think in exposing for the sky you've lost the land.

    Is it better to add 0.5 or 0.75 stops more?

    alternatively if you can change the temperature of the scene and warm it up like a sunset shot, the silouette effect may work.

    Would be good if the lake is "silky smooth".

    i.e use longer exposure + smaller aperture + ND filter

    google HDR.. theres a few easy websites that explain. CS2 now gives u the ability to combine different exposures.

    eg.

    alternatively, you can use a program like photomatix, which makes the process much easier.

    The focal point of the image for me is the dramatically polarized sky on top left. That looks good. Perhaps that was your intention.
    I would have liked to see more detail.. a clearer silhouette of the gate like structure in the water.

    Hi TMC, I practised some processing on your photo with the Capture NX. Would you mind that I post it?

    I didn't do any HDR thingy... just mess around with the colour control points a bit...

    hv read on a magazine .. tat if u shoot in raw
    u can divide your pic , in this case to 3 parts. sky, mountains and sea

    adjust them in raw shooter part by part.
    covert to jpeg and then merge the 3 pics together using PS

    maybe u want to try

    if u only have one exposure, the way to do it is to go back to your raw file. adjust one photo for highlights, adjust one photo for shadows so u end up with 2 separate copies.

    then u can combine either in CS or using a program like photomatix.

    Another shot at HDR. But this one has been converted to 8bit for jpg format. HDR does bring out some great colors for night shots.
