Today is December 1st. We are at the halfway mark for "Sunrises". Before you get all busy with the holidays, don't forget to grab a few early morning shots of the sun rising. Some wonderful images have been entered already, but I just know there are more out there!

As I was driving into work I knew this going to be a grand sunrise. So ran into the shop, grabbed my camera and shot this:

Got a few more up in the gallery. Still one roll of Provia 400X to scan this weekend.
There should be one or two shots in that series worth popping up.
Finally sorted out the exposure problems with the 645 ProTL! It was very simple: I installed a Beattie Intenscreen.
And totally forgot to compensate for the much increased light through it into the prism meter system!
Added +1.5 to the meter and it stopped under-exposing everything!
Took me a few tries with the Pentax spot meter and the prism meter, doing A-B comparisons, until it finally clicked!
:p

Glad you decided to come on board Axle! Very dramatic sunrise!

First, a very happy, healthy New Year to my fellow MSA members. May 2013 treat you all with kindness and compassion.
Now to the task at hand; selection of the winner of the Sunrises competition.
As I predicted, there were many worthy entries and picking only one was difficult. We had Bertus, who entered 5 images, both stunning color and outstanding B&W, adelorenzo gave us Purple Sunrise over Grey Mountain, a very intense rendering of the topic. These were followed by Mopar Guy's most elegant B&W November Sunrise, Stone NYC's Sunset (could have fooled me!) and Jim17x "A not so pretty sunrise" which was actually a quite dramatic interpretation of the topic.
Rounding out the entries were Kav and Axle, both with dazzling color portrayals. Lastly, Nsouto added an impressive six (!) submissions and it was here I found my winner. I believe "God's Fingers" to be a truly beautiful image, captured at just the right moment. The tree branch in the foreground gives depth and drama to a breathtaking sea and clouds photo. I wish I could have actually been there to view this outstanding sunrise, but will have to settle for this amazing print.
So Noons, the torch is passed to your capable hands, and we will await your choice for the first two months of 2013! I'm sure it will be both challenging and fun!
Great thanks to all who participated.
Sincerely,
barbara ann

PS Hope I didn't miss anyone. It was a little confusing switching between images posted in the thread and those in the gallery!

Thanks heaps, Barbara.
This image evokes a lot of good memories with me, from more than 40 years ago.
So it's actually quite touching to see others like it too.

My apologies for only seeing this now but I've been flat out at work.
The festive season is usually hectic in our shopping centres and this one was no different with every centre manager wanting their computers at top performance and all systems go. Let's just say I haven't had much slack in the last week or so...
