Took this shot at morning sunrise at looking glass rock in Asheville, NC. Was my first early morning shoot, would love any feedback anyone has.

I like it a lot, the colors are great and I love the fog laying down in the valley. I would be tempted to see what it looked like with a little more of the foreground cropped out.

Maybe lower the left horizon ever so slightly, as to make it a bit straighter. Maybe also up the contrast a bit? Give it some more pop. It really does like nice as is though.

Great thoughts on the foreground and horizon .. I'll make some adjustments and see what I get.

Great shot - I would take crop a bit off both the foreground and the sky. The middle ground from what I assume is Looking Glass Rock through the cloud layer is where the image stands out.

I totally agree with the idea of cropping out a little foreground.

It looks like you were just a few minutes short of some very good light. Did you shoot any after this one?

What a great place. I've climbed all over those mountains.

I do have a couple more that I have yet to edit. I got quite a few other angles as well.

It's very nice. You have a nice rule-of-thirds composition. I wouldn't crop anything, but I'd up the clarity/contrast on the foreground and the rock. You might brighten the rock a bit too.
