Sunrise captured from the fishing pier at 40 Acre Lake in Brazos Bend State Park, Texas, USA.

This is a 5 image HDR that I followed up with a small amount of de-fishing and a 16:9 crop.

Hello from the Critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge

There's no denying that clouds are definitely the subject here! I like your extreme composition it certainly captures the sunrise moment well, the start of a new day and new opportunities. I also like the resulting distortion from the fisheye lens but it feels unbalanced with the bulk of the land features on the right. In this situation where you are dealing with an obvious distortion like this a better option would have been to tilt the image to give it more balance, it really doesn't matter that your original horizon is way off level. Its good that you have captured some water to enable some reflections too.

Well done, thank you for your entry.
