Milky Way Reflected in Tioga Lake

My latest favorite. Tuned the White Balace to loose the orange and green of the far off city lights, while still preserving some of the blue. Used LAB color space to increase contrast without changing the color.

To me, this more closely captures the reality and mood of the night.
