    Compositionally, I think it's ok, but the color is too saturated, there are color shifts where there's over exposure, and you should have used a tighter aperture so the sun looks like a star and not a white blob.

    I thought a white blob would be better than a star, I mean, this is supposed to be a bright start to the day, soft and whatnot, and I figured anything for a sun other than a white blob would look too unnatural. But thanks for your opinion, I'll try a smaller aperture next time I shoot a sunrise. Thanks again!

    Hmm...I like this one too, but I think the other one is a lot more pleasing to the eye because of the color/tonal range with the snow and dark foliage and yellow sun all together. Is that a bridge back there being slighty illuminated by the sun?

    Thank you so much for that comment, I kept on getting white blobs on my sunset/sunrise pictures and I never figure out why! Finally I know the reason, now it just sounds so obvious, dammit!

    I agree on the color saturation, but I love the reflection on the water.
