[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photo taken in Thunder Bay Ontario while on a trip with my husband on his Cargo Ship the MV ALGOLAKE. We were there unloading coal for the Plant there and actually were going to be there to load coal to bring to Detroit Michigan as well. ( no not the same coal...:o) The morning brought this beautiful display that made me that much happier that I was there to experience it. I did nothing to the photo other than frame it. The colors were all Gods Idea.
Thanks for visiting my gallery and for your comments on my photos. :o)
Donna :o)

Donna, Nice morning sky...looks like the "sleeping giant" will soon awaken!...and easy to see that TB is a way-point for planes crossing Canada in both directions.



Hello Donna,
Wonderful sunrise here, you got an incredible colors!
I like also the vapour trails left by the planes
Good composition and presentation.

Hi Donna

What a fabulous sunrise and to cap it with the bonus jet smoke trails to give it a quite different look and dimension. Normally I would recon one do not want those smoke trails in your photo, but I sincerely believe that it work for the better in this shot.

Your composition is excellent and I like the rather darkish moody colours of this waxing sun. The horizon is snugly laying on the 1/3 horizontal plane, the lighter band of sunlit sky fills the middle 1/3, and the darker area of clouds fill the top 1/3. The colours (although you say you did no PP) are well saturated, the details are sharp, and you made excellent use of the available light.

Good work and TFS.

Bellos tonos con apropiado punto de vista y encuadre mostrando este maravilloso paisaje tan especial.
Me gusta el porcentaje de agua y cielo dentro de la composición con el sol escondiéndose de ti ;-)
Bien hecho Donna... TFS.
Saludos... Ricardo

Beautiful tones with appropriate point of view and framing showing this wonderful so special landscape.
I like the percentage of water and sky inside the composition with the sun hiding of you ;-)
Well done Donna... TFS.
Regards... Ricardo

Hi Donna,
Beautiful sunset colors in your sky, and the two vapor trails add nicely :)
Composition wise, perhaps it would be better if the sun were to the left or right, following the basic "rule of thirds". And a bit of USM would help give it some "snap".
Well done & TFS!

very nice Donna,
a very good view, fantastic atmosphere, good point of view and a fine balance in the shot, very nice Donna. congratiolation
