Oh, wow. I once had a sunrise shot with exactly the same name... It didn't look as good as this, though. ;) (I love the contrast in the clouds.)

who knew something like that would be so beautiful,

Amazing contrast

Love the wide view, [what kind of camera did you use to take such a large shot]

I especially love that single bird, it's in exactly the right position.

Amazing repetition at the bottom

Perfect Illumination of the clouds

[This should be a Print]

glad you like it :) I thought it was a print :O i'd better fix that!

It was taken with my 300D, standard 18-55mm lens. It was pretty far away though, so this was cropped from a much larger photo. That's probably what gives such an interesting effect with the perspective.

oic this reminds me of a pic of daytona beach I took like two weeks back, in florida. It was gonna be a great shot, w the colorful sunrise n everything. But it turns out that I was shooting on the wrong filmspeed and that only my zoom lens was on, and that my exposure time was way off, so0o the picture came out as crapily as possible X|

but im over it now 8)

i hate when that happens. Digital is suppose to fix problems like that, but i still sometimes get caught out. Just the other day i found this scene that looked really cool. A nice little piece of urban ruins, and i took a few shots. Then when i was going home i realised the camera was set on manual with a fairly slow shutter speed, so there was some blur in all my shots :(

Urgh, that sux X|
Just on sunday I saw like the GREATEST portrait/conceptual image of my entire life. I was at church and the lighting was like perfect, the morning sunrise was shining directly through the stained glass windows, and this little gir savannah was playing the tamb. Her hair was like glowing in different colors from the window, and I got ready to snap the shot, and realized that I didnt have anymore film >X{
