Once again, i haven't had enough time to process the files yet. However i can't stop myself... i need to know what you guys think and to share the amazing light that i was lucky to catch.
Early in the morning, 50 minutes before sunrise the sky already showed amazing colors an patterns.
I stayed in this lake for almost 30 minutes before starting to shoot any picture. During that time i walked and saw different tree brunches in the water, playing with the reflections. It was hard for me to choose the right composition between the changing reflections and the form of the branches. The sky was getting warmer and the light stronger and stronger, i could already see details with my naked eyes when i found this amazing tree branch, pointing at me and producing a beautiful frame for the horns reflection. I quickly set my camera and framed the shot, then waited until the lake got quiet and the reflection was perfect. As the light was still super soft, i had to take 2 shots in order to get everything in focus.
This is still a WIP, and i might play a little bit with color balance, this first version presents a cooler sky but retaining the warmth of the sunrise over the horns. I might leave like this or go for a warmer approach with less bluish tones. Your opinion on this will be super appreciated.

Superb! With a. Sky like you have I think that your color saturation and tones are good. It changes so very fast, and memory plays tricks. I really like your composition. What a memorable dawn you must have had. Regards Keith.
