.I hope it's not too tacky, but I saw a nice sunrise on Sunday and thought I'd fiddle around with it in post editing. I ran it through a program that makes it look painted, but then pulled back a bit from that effect. This one is more intense than the original photo, but less intense than the paint feature wanted to make it.
.The next photo remained natural, but instead of allowing the silhouette, I added flash. That way, we can see the snow on the branches.
