    That's a nice hotel room! And a good image.

    I wonder what it would have been like if you had taken it just after the sun had set? Would the whole sky have gone a more golden colour?

    On this one, I think I might have been persuaded to clone out the birds. They are a bit of a distraction. And I would like to see the impact of maybe bringing up just a little more detail on teh land in the foreground

    Thanks, Donald. This was taken just after sunrise. Unfortunately I did not stick around for sunset. But, I have a few pre-dawn images that should pretty nice. I will post a couple when I get to processing them. And next time I am going to carry my remote-release so that camera shake in pressing a button doesn't ruin a 30s exposure


    What do you think of this version.

    I have cloned out the birds, thanks for pointing those out. And bumped up the WB for more orange I have also brought out the land by increasing the fill light a little, but I am that it lacks in detail due to my image being exposed for the sky. The first one already had a compensation of +1.25 EV.

    Thank you, Donald. I am learning a lot about post processing with these photos. If you like orange skies at sunrise/sunset you might like the one in this thread. All taken during the same 4 day trip
