This image is my second version of this shot that I've shared with you, and I like this one much better. This version is closer to my original vision of a bright morning over the water and the grass. I was able to bring out the yellow and magenta of the sunrise on the left side of the image. While this shot is a photograph of the US Naval Academy, I created it to be first an impressionistic view of the sky, clouds, and water. The thin line of buildings across the center is intended as somewhat of an afterthought, or even a surprise, only to be discovered after reviewing the colors of the sky and the texture of the water. But, for anybody who is familiar with the area, this image should be an obvious reminder of how beautiful the campus can be in the morning.
