A large forest fire north of us has meant smoky conditions for this past week creating wonderful sunrise/sunset opportunities.

Your sky has some very noticeable "banding". There is nothing of interest in the quite dark foreground, and including that much foreground splits your picture in half. In this case, I'd go for 2/3 sky and 1/3 land. The sunrise colors (and size of sun) is nice.

Wonderful - it's where I'm from. Slightly more interesting subject matter and tighter cropping would get you a 10. A beautiful photo - thanks.

I think I would have liked a tighter crop at all sides.
