    C&C per req:

    1. I like this image, but I think perhaps there's a little more of the sky and wires than necessary. I would like to see a bit of the sky cropped off. As well, the use of a 2 stop G-ND to enhance the sunrise colours might well have taken this from good to great.

    2. Interesting composition, but too dark for my tastes. Again some G-NDs would have helped a lot.

    Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

    When I got home from work I did a quick edit to see if a bit of PP would help with the darkness...

    Here is my two cents... I can't decide... I adjusted the brightness/contrast a bit... It didn't seem to lighten it up much...

    thanks for the comments and suggestions guys. I did some quick editing..


    I tried to lighten the foreground but all i got was grain, so i opted for lightening the sky to try and get more contrast between the two:

    And for this one i cropped about halfway down from the top, up the contrast a small amount and did a recolor of the foreground grass to give it more pop and a "surreal" feeling:
