A beautiful image, the sunrise colours are wonderful.

May I ask, have you lifted the shadows at all? I would expect the distant hills to be in dark shadow with the sun rising behind them - I'd love to know what post processing you've done. Smile

I've spent two days editing this Karen, believe it or not the horizon hasn't been touched much apart from the ones on the right.

-First i gave it a bit of unsharp mask.
-Got rid of all the birds because they were really messy and they looked like dirt on my lens.
-Then i rotated the horizon a little.
-selected the sky and gave it some contrast in curves.
-Then i selected the ground and gave it some brightness in curves.
-darkened the mountains.
-I cleaned up the horizon.
-Selected the lake and gave it some contrast.

And that was about it. All accomplished in gimp 2.6.

Thanks for all the great comments.
