Natural landscapes: making the best of sunrise


OK, the sunrise really wasn’t this spectacular. But I knew I had the genesis of a pretty good photo if I did my best to capture what was before me. Then it was up to my processing ability to show you why I was there at that time. I darkened the sky, darkened the water, increased the saturation, then lightened the entire jpeg so it would show up on the web as best as possible.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, enhancing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
