I think you might be seeing alot of these for awhile..hope you all don't tire of Sunrises. Thats one good thing about the amazing world we live in. Everyday is different and every morning I look out my window to a new view. I swear sometimes the beauty is so amazing It leaves me in awe. Thanks for looking! Hope you like it!
I did nothing to the photo other than framing and resizing..this is just how I saw it.

Hi Donna,
I guess I am one of the guy who never tired of viewing a beautiful sunrise or sunset. Anyone of them is always unique in colors, cloud formation, reflections, silhoutte, etc. This one is lovely, I like it.

Nicely done Donna! Seems a bit on the dark side to me though. Perhaps try playing with the shadows a bit to get some more detail. Excellent colour and sharpness. Are you enjoying that XTi?

Hi Donna,
Beautiful colours and a nice large sun. good composition and a beautiful photo,

nice piture - sunrise or sunset? your camera times shows 19:58...

the darkness of the shot makes for a very moody atmosphere, possibly too dark not sure.

Hi Donna,
very pleasant this lying of sun, beautiful reflections in water. Beautiful colors of the clouds.
Thank you,

Donna If I didn't see a sunrise I would wonder abt "the end of times"...

I see you caught some teasels on the shoreline, they add that extra touch. Wonderful colours. Seems very deep/dark red for a rise.
Did you tweak 'em? Tfs, Jay
PS The horizon is off; one easy way to see that in a situation like this is to key off of the reflection of the sun in the water. Reflections like that have to be plumb. This photo is quite ddark so one has to be on the ball to ssee the horizon is not level. But the shaft of light is a dead give away... ;) I did a WS for you.
