    Hi all. As I arrived home from work early yesterday morning I noticed the
    most fantastic sunrise in. So I dashed in to the house, grabbed the Canon
    10D and rattled off a couple of snaps. I must admit I didn't think much more
    about them and went to bed for some well earned sleep. Anyway, later on I
    remembered the sunrise and decided to check out the pictures. One of them
    was truly beautiful - it captured the burning red sky perfectly and the
    houses in the foreground were cast into almost complete shadow to give only
    an outline with no detail. I did some minor tweaking in Photoshop - to
    completely darken the outline of the houses, removing any distracting detail
    like windows etc (I did this using Levels) and also to bring a bit more
    depth to the red sky (it didn't need a lot, I did it using Hue and
    Saturation on the Red Channel). Take a look at the picture and I would
    welcome any comments. The amount of post-processing really was quite
    minimal, this is how I remember that sky and I am so glad I have the picture
    to remind me of it.
