Don't take this the wrong way but did you do any manipulation on any software such as Photoshop ?
Either way it's a cracking shot - well done.
Thanks everyone !!! I am truly humbled especially considering the wonderful entries this month.

As for your question, I shot this in RAW so I had to do some post-processing to it. I did a little curves adjustment, and I did some selective contrast adjustment to the boat to bring out more detail. I also selectively boosted the saturation in the reflections of the clouds in the water too make them look more like clouds. This was all done in Photoshop after RAW conversion in Nikon Capture.

My goal is to have my photographs look like what my eyes saw when I was out shooting that evening.

On a side note: I'll be out of commission for a while. I'm going in for back surgery soon so I'll not be on too much if at all in the coming weeks. The $150.00 will be nice to cover some (barely a drop I'm afraid) of my medical costs.
