    Yes, I am still alive! After spending the last couple weeks not shooting while I replaced the hard drive and uped the memory in my puter...I thought I had better get out! So up at 4am to drive 1hr 1/2 and make the sunrise in a spot made semi famous by Amsel Adams. I got there and ran down the trail to the lake just in time. C&C always welcome. I should mention....be sure to use the lightbox.

    Well Paul, I would say it was well worthwhile getting up early for. Excellent set of images. The first one in particular is a beauty.

    Very nice series, paul. Love the curve of the trees in the second one, and the height of the trees in the third.

    Thank you Mike, Dave and Steve. I need to get up early more often. Now I am due a nap.

    Oh my. I'd say well worth the early rise. I do like the color versions best...

    Thank you Frank, Bobo and Chuck. I was a bit unhappy with the BW conversion and am redoing it.
    Done...here it is revised slightly.

    Really like this one paul, and worth the effort to get it right. Hope i did it justice.

    Darkened the sky and detail around the mountain.
    Removed the jet trail
    Brightened the foreground
    Added a slight vignette to brighten the center portion of the trees (same as a regular vignette, but used screen mode)
    A little dodge and burn in a few places here and their
    noise reduction
    a bit of sharpening

    Paul the first one is excellent. I love it. I think you should try to burn and saturate the sky a bit.
