Sunrise and sunset images are among my favorites. Of course that is the ideal time to take photos due to the incredible directional light and tremendous colors. Add some clouds into the mix and some post process tweaking and you can come away with some extraordinary images.
The sunrise above was shot a number of years back and while I didn’t have easy access to the raw file, I did come across the jpg and decided to see how much tweaking I could do. To my surprise I was able to bring in some vibrant color and touch up the brightness in the foreground without much degradation to the detail.
