Greetings from the Critique Club

I think the score you received is probably around about right for this shot. This is indeed a beautiful sunrise, however, there are a number of things that could have improved the score quite easily.

The extreme shadows in the foreground do actually hurt this one a little bit. If the foreground was slightly lighter the viewer would be able to put the excellent leading line more into context. Right now it looks a little out of place.

Composition: if you had perhaps taken a few steps to the right so the subject was more to the left of the frame you could have made better use of the leading line. Also, to my eye the horizon looks like it is right in the middle of the photo. I think including a little bit more of the sky may have helped this.

Overall a very nice sunrise photo that potentially could have scored a little higher with some additional editing.

Is this a trailer, or a mushroom with a door?

Quote: '"sun-rise" noun: The daily first appearance of the sun above the eastern horizon.' Maybe it's above but behind that thing? Very beautiful colors.

I really like all the colors, and the use of the pipe leading towards the sunset is a nice touch. I would've liked a bit wider swatch illuminated on the center, but the isolation is kinda cool too.

looks like a trailer with someone outside....you couldn't have moved left or right and gotten that out of the photograph...the sunrise looks spactular

I think the sky looks great and that you're very dedicated for getting up so early to capture a sunrise. I wish we could see a bit more of the structure, it's a smidge too dark for me.

I like this. What a sky! It is a little difficult to know what the subject is (a small travel trailer with someone in front of it?), or what the long object is that is reflecting the sun.

Very interesting composition, with strong colors. But I'm a bit frustrated with the central subject 'cause I can't make it out. A trailer? The back of a bus? A tank?
