Woke up early for the sunrise, drove about 30 miles, and found an "okay" spot. Not sure about the aperture, I'm using the Series E 50mm and it doesn't get recorded.

Greetings from the Critique Club...

You got great color in that morning sunrise. I think your own critique pretty much sums up my thoughts on this. In particular, the goal is very distracting because the eye isn't sure what the focus of the picture is. If it's the goal, the sun is too bright and pulls the eye right to it. If it's the Sun, the goal posts are extra stuff that just gets in the way.

I get what you were going for here, I just don't think this composition works very well.

Hope this is at least somewhat helpful.
