    Lake Macquarie sunrise.

    I was up early for the blood moon but it was totally clouded over so got these on the way back home.
    The first one is a bit dark but it was very early.

    Re: Lake Macquarie sunrise.

    I like the composition of #1 and the tone but as you mentioned it's quite dark. Did you do any processing o the image? There are some great colours hiding in there even for a small Jpeg.
    This is just a lift in basic levels:

    Yes. This is the final iteration of that image. The removal of the second boat and correction of the background was all done in Affinity.
    Your adjustments are almost identical to mine.

    I like the composition of the first image, I'm personally a fan of the two boats, but whatever floats your boat i guess.....

    Nice to see both your mostly untouched image and your edit!

    Re: Lake Macquarie sunrise.

    To help better identify what you could have done better, you should also upload the camera settings used for each image.
    I quite like the first one, especially the reflection on the still water. I tend to get lost in the second.
    Try to focus on your light meter/histogram next time and see if you can get a more evenly balanced image in terms of exposure.
    I like where you're going with this though!

    I convert to .jpg with all metadata included. It seems to be stripped on upload.
