I've never before shot sunrises or sunsets and now there's some trick to balancing the the brightness of the sun, the sky and the shadows of the foreground objects. Any as-simple-as-it-gets advice on shooting a sunrise like this. This was early morning, around 7:20 a.m. with blue sky and perfectly round, orange sun. This image is straight from the camera -- Canon Dig. Reb XT, shot at f/9, 125th. I basically aimed the camera out my car window and shot it while cruising down the interstate.
