"Sunrise on the fly"
Sun 22-Sep-13 08:49 PM by Rassie


We had a foggy early morning earlier this week. I saw this sunrise on the way to visit a customer, so I pulled over and shot this out of the car. Didn't have time to use a tripod and I couldn't stand there for long due to traffic.

D7000 with Nikkor 18-200 mm.
ISO 400, F/11, 1.250 sec.

A scene to be photographed. It is obvious that if you had time you would have done much better. I think it needs some serious cropping. The two trees on the right is overwhelming.

I hope I may dare to change this picture with a suggested crop.

I nice yellow sun. The fog was indeed so thick that it bent the sun out of shape :)

Aart, I think I understand what you're after, namely focusing on the bare essentials. But there is a special feeling in the original photo that gets lost in the cropped versions. It is the effect of the fog or haze. Without the thick haze it would have been impossible to capture the sun and the backlit vegetation, with detail visible in both. In most sunrise shots, as soon as the sun is above the horizon, either the foreground in bare silhouette or the sun is burnt out, or both. What I like in the original is the fact that there's color in the sun as well as the vegetation, and this effect is diluted in the cropped versions.

Regards, Antero

One do loose a lot with this severe crop but one should be able to rescue much of the color with the original in raw. On the other hand the original was a moment to share and not to cook up a perfect picture. Thank you Antero for somewhat blunting what appear to be sharp criticism.

I would like to see the black foreground cropped out and make it a more of a panoramic sunset.
