i almost forgot, 'dphillips'. i live in the southern hemisphere and that tree in the middle is dead so you wouldn't expect foliage.

thanx for the votes everybody, very appreciated!
firstly, everybody said i should have lowered the angle. i would have liked to but if you look closely you can see a house roof top down the bottom. i didn't have time to take the photo differently.
secondly, the reason i didn't actually have the sun in the picture is because it would mess the exposure and because the colours only went good when the sun was below the horizon.
My last comment is about the picture actually being the sun setting not rising, which most people picked up on. I didn't think it would matter because sunrise can look like that and i was just representing what i like about new days.

Simply beautiful. Well done.
08/18/2002 10:12:00 PM
And yet another cliche shot ;)
Beautiful colors however and well executed photo.
08/18/2002 11:32:00 AM
You captured some beautiful colors here.
08/17/2002 05:39:00 PM
Beautiful sunset, it also fits for the coming of a new season, the trees without their leaves and all. Nice work!
08/17/2002 05:32:00 PM
Looks more like a sunset, red skys are not as common on sunrise. Great colors.
08/17/2002 12:53:00 PM
This is absolutely beautiful. I was sitting here wondering if it would be a tad better without the trees in the way, and then I'm thinking that the trees looked good in contrast to the sky. I guess I would have to see it taken both ways to be able to judge that. Very nice. Good luck with the challenge.

this is the best new day shot I have seen this week (7)
08/16/2002 10:38:00 PM
Incredible shot. I absolutely love this photo!
08/16/2002 03:05:00 PM
awesome light but i don't see the sun... it'd be nice to show a sunrise just as it peaks over the horizon/mountain....
08/16/2002 12:31:00 PM
Awesome capture.
08/15/2002 11:15:00 PM
fantastic sunrise 8
08/15/2002 09:06:00 PM
Wonderful contrast. I angle of view was slightly to the right so as to frame the shot with just two trees
08/15/2002 08:01:00 PM
I don't like to see the name of the challenge (new) used in the title... too cliche or something. There are lots of other, more creative ways to express it. Actually looks more like a sunset to me, but I know sometimes you get real red skies in the morning too. Good photo but too many "sunrise" type photo's in this challenge.
08/15/2002 04:06:00 PM
Lovely colors, and clear shot. IMHO more of the landscape and less of the darkest sky at the tip top. Still nice catch here, good work. Score -6 Kee
08/15/2002 11:03:00 AM
I love the colors that you captured on this picture. I like looking at it. You should be on the top 5.
08/14/2002 10:04:00 PM
Very dramatic!
08/14/2002 09:15:00 PM
How does that go. Red sky at night, fisheman's delight. Red Sky in the morning, take warning. Boys I messed that up. Looked like a pretty nasty day coming up. Very nice colours (6).
08/14/2002 05:43:00 PM
not original, but gorgeous pic
08/14/2002 11:39:00 AM
Why no foilage on trees and is it really a new day??? Questionable when taken.
08/14/2002 09:29:00 AM
Magnificent Sky!
08/14/2002 06:53:00 AM
Love this kind of sky. The trees add something too.
08/14/2002 12:37:00 AM
nice coloring, but the trees seem a bit distracting

Technical Aspects8
08/13/2002 08:36:00 PM
very nice job with the vivid colors... I love nice sunrise/sunset shots but I rarely shoot any myself. I think this particular shot would be improved by lowering the angle somehow to bring the ground into view... the silhouetted trees here are very nice, but having them cut off half way up seems a little awkward.. good shot :) - jmsetzler

nice sunrise, good color
08/13/2002 03:54:00 PM
I love taking photos like this too! Well done, especially to get up for a sunrise..with my schedule I have to specialize in sunsets.
08/13/2002 02:37:00 PM
What a wonderful sky---quite beautiful andrewm
08/13/2002 01:42:00 PM
Great texture from the clouds and trees - wonderful colors!
08/13/2002 01:19:00 PM
Nice. Focus looks ok, lighting is great. 7
08/13/2002 06:12:00 AM
A wonderful picture with in my opinion one tiny flaw. I would have liked to see a whole tree in the foreground. The colours are sensational (7)
08/12/2002 10:59:00 PM
Lovely sunrise
08/12/2002 10:10:00 PM
looks more like a sunset for some reason. Great sky colours
08/12/2002 09:17:00 PM
08/12/2002 08:48:00 PM
Excellent colors and contrast! I've seen scenes like these but could never capture the essence of them. I believe you have.
Picky comment: this looks more like dusk than dawn.

I like this a lot...beautiful colors! Only thing..I wish that I could see the full silhouette of the center tree. But maybe that wasn't possible because of the environment and the lens used...maybe if it were taken vertically? Great job -7

Beautiful photo, i love the colors in the sky.
08/12/2002 05:48:00 PM
Perfect skys, although a more wider shot would have really captured the moment even better. Ronin
08/12/2002 05:43:00 PM

Beautiful sunrise.
08/12/2002 02:41:00 AM
Beautiful but it looks more like sunset than sunrise.However, even if it is sunset it could be the new sunset of the day.
