Given the lack of contrast and color in the background, I'd try a square crop on this one to get rid of a lot of the negative space on the left and keep the foreground and photographers in there. I like the impact that they have, but the colors just aren't there for a real 'sunrise' picture, IMO.

Agree on the color, I have some more pics from the same morning with the sun and pink skies, but it just wasn't a great morning. No clouds at all a featureless sky.

I have tried a square crop,
thanks for the quickresponse

I liked the uncropped version better. Not for a good sunrise photo but, it shows the magnitude of the scene..

I love this shot...looks like a camera commercial (drop the sunset title maybe).
Agree with vam...I like the original but cropped at the top and left to maintain your image ratio....would also try to bring out the hill colours and textures and distant background separately....example:

thanks for the comments. I prefer the original format as well. but if someone offers some advice I will nearly always try it out.
Spike I will try to seperate like you suggest. maybe this evening, the original is in raw.
BTW the two "models" both had 7D's

I do like the crop, but Spike's edit is pretty nice, too. You have a great image to work with there, even if the colors might not be what one might want for a sunrise/sunset

You might want to jack up the saturation and contrast even more than Spike did. You never know the tweek limits until you exceed them. It's a nice shot, so wring all you can out of it.
