Hi GMC
Thanks for the kind words and useful advice.  I implemented the changes you suggested and agree, it does look better with a bit more contrast and stringer yellows.  Hopefully I didn't go too far.
I had hoped for a bit more mist on the day, but think it turned out OK.
v2 attached.
Thanks once again
Chris

Hi Chris,

I really like what you have done with this photo. It's gorgeous!

Also, I just realized that your earlier post about intense color was maybe about my photo. It is not common to have that intensity of color, but it sometimes does occur. I think that was a rare combination of diffuse low mist (volcanic fog from Kilauea volcano they call Vog) and sun angle. I rarely get up that early, so when I saw it, I had to run and get my camera. I also cropped and changed the exposure and saturation a bit to make it look more like what I actually saw.

Cheers,
Eric

Welcoming the new day from an unusual viewpoint at Dead Horse Point after shooting the Milkyway, blue hour and then the sunrise.

Very cool! 8)

Much better Chris in my humble opinion.

Well, I'm always up early in the morning. But then I have to decide how big I want the sun to be. These three are at 100mm, 200mm, and 400mm with a 6D.
Beautiful photos.  I imagine it's easier getting up early if this sort of view is waiting  :)
I assume you're not based in the UK  ;)

Thanks for the comments, Woodwideweb. No, I'm not in the UK. I live on the South Carolina shore. I have family living in Ireland, and they don't even know what the sun looks like. :)

Two very nice sunrises guys! I usually don't get up early enough to see a sunrise, but last week I got up just as a very red sunrise was starting to fade. I grabbed my 5D3 and shot this from my front yard. A minute or so later and it was gone.

Beautiful colors in that shot. I can certainly relate to your comment that a minute or so later and it was gone. Those sunrise shots are a fleeting moment for sure.

Nice picture.  Sometimes the early start is worth it.
Here's one from last month, Dorset, UK.  Not 100% sure on the processing yet so any comments welcome.

I love the subtle colors and depth
