About the Image(s)

On our way back from the Spokane conference I took the train to Glacier NP. On the way back home and traveling through the park I saw this sunrise which I kind of liked. I adjusted the tones using the "Auto" setting in Lightroom, cropped some of the right and erased the power line on the left. I then took the image into PS and used Topaz DeNoise for this final version.

beautiful sunrise. It's tough to take thru a window from a moving train which I've tried. Things a a bit blurry, reflections in the window, could take out the other power lines. I don't know how many pictures I've tried to take from a moving bus.   Posted: 05/15/2020 14:12:12

Fantastic colors! Hard shot to make and because of the movement the photo looks soft. My suggestion would be to try either Topaz or the "painting" filters in PS to make it more painterly. I still see little bits of the power lines but think there still is a lot you can pull from this photo!   Posted: 05/18/2020 13:25:20

Looking closer at the original, i agree with removing the remaining power lines. You did well in the camera as well as in the computer. Jesse.   Posted: 05/22/2020 13:31:21

John- You did what you could in improving the image and I think you did the best. I have no suggestion to improve your image further because I have no gadget that you people have with you. I have no other than PS! However, I like your Sunrise image taken through the moving train which I thought a great shot!

The power lines are a slight distraction and the reflections is a bit more. From looking at your original I do not feel you could go any further with the editing.   Posted: 05/25/2020 17:06:59

I see a great improvement of the original image. The sky colors are beautiful. I like Debbie's suggestion of using filters or masks to create a painterly image. As Allen stated, I don't see a way of making changes using traditional editing tools.   Posted: 05/25/2020 19:37:24
