    I cant decide if these are ,to dark,to plain, or to bare.
    I usualy like to add an interesting item to sunrirse shots ,,,like a piece of vintage farm equipment, or a towering tree etc.
    On these I ommited any detail, hoping the deep colors would prevail.
    Canon 20d sigma 10-20, is0 400.

    Please fell free to edit ,,thanxs

    You HAVE an element added to the photos (don't know WHAT it is, but there is this ... pyramid of sorts), and you focus on the vastness of sky and its beauty at sunrise and the fascinating colours, so that is what should show - and it does. So to my mind you succeeded.

    And I say you succeeded best in 1, since I need not see any details on the ground, therefore I prefer the silhouetted ground of 1 and the deeper colours in the sky by shorter exposure.

    4 is too dark.

    3 is to wide and too bright and not sharp enough. And includes powerlines that only help to distract, I think.

    Yup, when I saw the first one, i though, oh the clouds have good color, but need to be brighter.

    I scroll down and...

    bingo. You just need to fix the stuck pixel in it.

    Thanks, for the comments,folks. I prefer #1 to me it has a "broody" look.
    Upon reflection, I agree with La Foto' oservations.

    I have realized , just because its a u.w.a. it doesn't have to be at 10mm all the time.
    BTW The structure is a feed lot silo.
