Default Sunrise in Greece

Few photos from early morning on Kefalonia. I took a lot more but I can't decide which I like best, there's just too many of them.
All comments welcomed.
More photos later when I have time to do them.

ist DL2, Sigma 10-20mm, Cokin ND8 soft grad, tripod

Nice colors. I really like the composition of that first shot.

Beautiful sunrise well captured.

Personally I would crop those rocks in the foreground off of #1 as they distract from the sunrise. It is a lovely shot though.

Funny how people's tastes can vary...the rocks in the foreground is what I like on that shot as they add depth and dimension to the composition.

Yes, I saw your comment and knew what you found interesting .... however for me I just felt the actual sunrise comprises of too small a percentage of the whole. Luckily art is very subjective and so we can have totally opposing / differing views on the same shots !

What an amazing sunrise, the colors are awesome! I like them all, perhaps the second one a little more than the others, but all of them are outstanding.
