    wow, personally, I love it. What I am trying to figure out is: did you do any PS work on the fog in the background. It almost looks like you cloned the trees into the back. Im guessing you didnt.

    Great snap!

    The color gradation is extremely cool. But the rest of the shot is boring.

    I like the color of the sky but to me I think the fog would have been a more interesting shot. The forground is too dark for me, not the tree just the forground. Try cropping just above the road or whatever that light band is across the photo.

    The subtle colouring of the fog is gorgeous. Nice shot

    I agree, nice shot. I would have done one thing different, that being comp. The really dark silhouette of the tree is nice, but it sort kills the shot and takes up space that the awesome color of the sunrise could have been.

    I'm having dejavu. I thought I just commented on this stuff. Hmm Weird.

    Anyways. i love the shot. I love the fog and the color gradient in the background.
    I didn't notice the foreground until it was mentioned and now it bugs me too and I think it should be cropped out.
    I'm drawn mostly to the faded trees in the very middle. There's something about them that I like alot for some reason.

    Cut down the power lines. Otherwise it's a great shot!

    damn powerlines, they ruin everything lol. Nice shot, im debating with myself whether a crop above that line in the foreground would look good.

    Couldn't disagree more, this shot is great. I think you exposed the dark areas well to capture the mood, the obvious challenge of this shot.
