*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

An appealing image that is assumed to meet the challenge.

Your shot has captured that moment of sunrise that we are all in awe of and appreciative to experience. The tones are generally good throughout and l like the hazy aspect of it but I am not very keen on the flare that I feel detracts from the end result. Whenever you are shooting direct into the sun like this flare is always there to a greater or lesser extent that will be experienced but sometimes it can be used to your advantage to draw attention to a particular aspect or even alter the viewers perception. Here I am visualising the image without that flare and preferring what I see, apart from that it is a pleasing result.

Thanks for your submission and apologies for the delay, Sid.

I like the haze and the sort of dreamlike feel to this. The trees in silhouette add just enough realism to it.

Like how the glare highlights the tree and kind of draws your eye into the photograph.
