Sunrise - 朝焼け

Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
Ai-S Nikkor 85mm F2.0
F5.6, 1/30, ISO-100

I changed WB to "Shade" and slightly altered the black and recovery and slide the clarity to negative (make it little soft).

In reality it was slightly more blueish sky like this (WB was "Cloudy" setting).
It also could be better if I clone out the tree brunch at the bottom right corner, which is kind a behind the water-mark.
