Taken way too early this morning, love the lighting at this hour, but hard to get out the door.

So nice to see another early riser reminding us the beauty of sunrise :-) Be sure that your trouble is well appreciated, Jim. I especially liked the reflection of the sky on the water. It was raining very heavily for a while, it seems. Btw, I'd favour the third one. And I hope you don't mind my edit on it.

Thank you, and no I don't mind at all. I like what you have done with it, how did you do it? When I brighten in Nikon Capture or Photoshop, I often seem to wash out some of the image. I am not much of a photoshop guru, usually stick with things like auto levels, but many of the auto fixes tend to over do it a bit.

I love the early morning, and am usually up feeding the cats and dog. It's just hard to get my lazy self out the door, but am always happy when I do it.

Jim

I'm glad you liked the edit, Jim. That's easy...First you should have an inspiring image such as yours:-)
First I selected the sky with the magnetic lasso tool in the PS. then increased the mid tone at the levels and click ok. After I deselected the sky I sharpened the whole image by 30-40% in the USM and then increased the saturation some 20% in the color correction of the quick fix, and that's all. It's been delightful as I said...Please never feel lazy to go out to shoot examples of Amazing Grace!!

Thanks so much, I am taking notes. Will have to buy a book on Photoshop and learn some of these techniques.
I work allot with camera settings to keep post processing to a minimum, but my post processing is usually limited to fixing my screw ups with the camera. What you have done is more along the lines of art, thank you.

Here is a shot of me (soft focus on me, got a remote release now so that will be better) in the Everglades. The tower I took the sunrise shots from looked out on this area.

Up way too early this morning, but I think it was worth it.
