[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic area provides endless beautiful scenes which I rarely have the time or talent to capture. This photo I took on my way to work Friday morning of the sunrise. I was traveling west and the sun was rising behind me and seemed so beautiful I had to look for a place to pull over and get a photo. I climbed up on the top of the railroad tracks and took 3 shots, this is the best I think.

I only increased the contrast +2 and rotated, cropped and resized.

Very nice landscape Lori, the light from the sun is magnificent and I like the layers created by the varying amounts of darkness. Great shot, well done.

very good colours and very good landscape picture with good composition, I think that you should give a little more of the branches on the right.

WoW!!! Superbe prise de vue avec une magnifique lumičre. Félicitations.

Very good picture Lori.
It's a very beautiful view. Very good colours, exposure and composition. IMO it's your best so far. As Mike says, a wallhanger.
Great work.

Technical quality:***
Wow factor:****

Very good shot, but I would prefer the bottom to be complitely black.
Well done.

Very nice sunrise. The color is great and the composition with the trees on the sides and foreground is really nice.

Lori, this is a simply stunning shot.
The golden reflection on the water is beautiful. it is such a warm shot.
It must be nice to know that you get to see this incredible scenery every day.
Thanks for posting

Hi, Lori--
This is wonderful. Isn't it amazing what we'll do sometimes to get the right shot. (8^)

Beautiful picture! I like the composition and the colors.

A beautiful, classic sunrise, Lori! Washington state is so pretty, and this shot shows it well. TFS!
