I wish I lived closer to the beach so I can keep taking photographs like this. You can be a newbie photographer and still take a stellar sunrise or sunset picture. I also wish I were more of a morning person! This was taken obviously at sunrise while on vacation in Tybee Islands which is just a five hour drive from Atlanta. It’s easier to wake up at the crack of dawn when you’re on vacation isn’t it? The magic hour places a vital role in sunrise and sunset pictures and capturing the light is a fleeting moment. The whole world seems still and calm at this hour. I took this photograph through my Canon and then tweaked again with saturation, contrast and brightness including the exposure. Some people tend to overuse HDR when they should let the natural colours and light do all the work.
