From this morning, down by the lake...
Lightly adjusted in The Gimp.
Morning skies like this are just too beautiful to let the photography chance pass, aren't they.
In your Gimp-adjustment, you made it lean a bit heavy on the purple side, though, while I believe it was a deep blue and the clouds where still kind of orange-y from the rising sun, I think I find the colour of the sky a bit unnatural. (Or is it some polariser effect? I had that, but on prints, before, and I say the lab made the prints go wrong in my case!)
Hmm... yes, I see what you mean. Thinking back, it seemed as though it was quite purply, but perhaps there was a bit more orange.... Like this? It can be had to tell on a laptop monitor.
All the tweaking I did was raise the black level a tad to sillhouette the trees completely, and adjust the gamma for each channel and the overall image... and just a touch on the saturation. On my monitor, it's pretty close to the amount of color I saw... really incredible colors for a sunrise... or maybe I just don't get up early enough often enough! For the edit, I just adjusted the R, G, & B gammas again.
What do you think?
