Default Sunrise

We live in such a beautiful place. This sunrise was special. Straight out of the camera and an HDR. HDR isn't the real deal, but it does give that first take your breathe away moment.

A beautiful sunrise! I think with some simple photoshop adjustments you could make it pop as much as the HDR version but without the annoying halos. Depending on how much "pop" you want, try adding some saturation and curves adjustment. I tried one layer using some targeted adjustments using Nik's Viveza that came out really well. Topaz Lab's Adjust does almost as well.

Gorgeous colours PB. I am a real fan of HDR and love looking through shots taken by those HDR Meisters.

I like the added detail and colors in the tree that the HDR provided, Adds more interest than the silhouette does. Both do have the WOW factor as Paul stated
