    Parachilna Sunrise

    I, for once, got up early to take this. I'm a sucker for red skies and the clouds looked interesting.

    Parachilna Sunrise

    Parachilna is in the north of South Australia, and features gourmet meals, including their "FMG" (feral mixed grill) which contains all the animals on our coat of arms, and a camel sausage for good measure.

    C & C welcome. I know the area around the sun is blown, but I don't think it spoils it too much.

    Well worth it, David.

    I agree. Indeed, I might have thought about going even further with it so that you could have got the merest detail into the land in the foreground rather than it going completely to black. That, of course, is where reverse GNDs come into their own, but I think I'd only be investing in them if I was doing a lot of sunsets and sunrises.

    It's impossible for the sun not to be blown, so don't worry about it too much. I don't mind the foreground being black, although I would be inclined to crop a cm or so off the bottom to make the sky more prominent in the frame.

    Nice, David, great color, and you got up in time. And I agree with Donald about getting some foreground. If you have it in LR, PS or the equivalent, did you try bringing up the shadows, or increasing foreground exposure using a GND manipulation? I suspect there is something there to see, if you did.

    Great color and I like the trees in silhouette and the jagged horizon. Some unnecessary space top and bottom could be eliminated with a pano crop.
