Re: Suggesting aperture blades is unlikely to be right.

Battery power goes down significantly at the temperatures you mention.

If the batteries are reasonably warm at the start of the session it may take them an hour or so to cool enough not to provide enough power for the camera to operate normally. As you report the batteries work good when they warm up.

A common workaround is a second battery in a warm inside coat pocket and to rotate the batteries during the shooting session.

Great images are often of good subjects.
If they are great images does what lens, body or technique was used matter more than the skill of the photographer?
