Your certainly out and about catching the sun rise well done, this is another nice addition to your pf. Terry obviously I wasn't there but would it have been possible to turn slightly to the left to capture this image ?. The reason I ask this is because the orange glow to the sky on the right appears to to end against the clouds, whereas the glow appears to carry on to the left. You may have been able to capture the glow all through the image? Just an idea . I have cropped some off the right and extended the left to give you an idea.
Nice shot Terry.
You seem to be at the stage with the camera where you are relying on the P mode, and are getting used to the feel before trying the modes that will give you more control.
With this, you have added the negative exposure compensation to handle the bright sky, a good decision, however both the speed and aperture are left to the camera. The camera is quite dumb really, - its makes a decision based on the light coming into the sensor, and doesnt take into account that youre using a long lens set to 238mm, and therefore has selected a shutter speed much too slow for the shot, causing blur, unless you are using a tripod, very solid support, or are exceptionally lucky, or are a neurosurgeon. The shutter speed here would need to be around 1/400 ( guide is shutter speed = 1/(focal length * crop factor)).
In P mode, you would have been able to increase the shutter speed, I believe if you had known about this method, or, you could use Tv, or shutter priority and set the speed to 1/400th.
So the image is not sharp. As you have shot for the bright area, the bottom is a little too dark.
Ive looked at your portfolio shots, and softness seems to be consistent, so keep an eye on shutter speed. One more thing, - when you re size your image and save it, open it before you upload, check it for sharpness and sharpen as needed, save, and then upload. The re sizing process can make an image soft the majority of the time.
