Oranges by moonlight

I took this shot a few nights ago when the moon was just about full. With about a foot of snow on the ground there was a great glow coming into the house.
I used a very long exposure to make sure the oranges and chair were properly exposed with the soft lighting. An interesting thing is that the oranges actually ended up being more colorful in the end shot than they were in real life. Long exposures normally give you great color saturation.
