From the Critique Club

Things I like: The DOF is nice here. There are some fun textures with the whispiness of the clouds. The sky colors are nice. The sun is not blown out like in some sunrise pictures.

Things I don't like: The utility pole in the foreground. The foreground itself (IMHO) needs more or less detail. I find myself trying to figure out what is in the foreground and am distracted away from the beautiful sky. I haven't tried any shots like this one so I have no suggestions on how to fix this except to say more, or less detail is needed. The clouds at the very top are not quite in focus and though not terribly distracting, the composition would be a bit stronger without them.

In general, this shot to me is not spectacular enough to keep my attention or make me go 'wow'. There is nothing really wrong with the shot, it's just that there are so many sunrise/sunset photos around that only the OUTSTANDING ones get and hold my attention. While this one is good, it's unfortunately not outstanding.

would be better with power line cropped out at the bottom, also seems a little too dark on the bottom for my personal taste.

Nice clean freah clouds - a real morning feel. Wish the electric line (?) was not there. You could spot edit later.

I think it would look better if you cropped those top blurred clouds out of the picture.
The horizon is a bit angled - could be straightened better
Nice capture of sun, focus good. Good job.
