Thanks Hards80. Very nice.

Here's another version, this time with a darkened foreground:

That foreground still looks hazy soft to me. No blacks.

my 2 visual cents, the blues seem to have more of a pop here than the reds and yellows do.

Thanks Jeff. It's amazing how many different looks are possible from one image.

I checked the histogram and it definitely has blacks alright. From memory I think I used fairly light clipping at 1%, so it may not have as much contrast as you prefer.

I've said this before. Images may look different on the net, then on your monitor!

Many programs have a preview feature which allows you to see how the image will look on the net.

Do you mean the browser may display images differently to whatever graphics package ?

That's why he took a sunrise shot - completely different concept. (At least for me - never have been able to get up for one of these unless I catch it at the end of a night shift.)

I was up early again this morning, before sunrise and the land is actually quite bright and easy to see details. Again its a balance between realism and the artistic to bring the viewers focus to the point of interest.
