This sunrise image was taken on Saturday at Robert’s photography workshop. He had us photographing the front-lit cabbage palms at first, probably because there were clouds on the horizon and the backlit sunrise against the trees wouldn’t be so impressive. Then we noticed the sun peeking through the clouds, creating beautiful rays of light. I learned something useful from Robert and this image: do not use auto white balance at sunrise. It skews the colors in your image. I applied the “cloudy” white balance setting in my post-processing and liked the sky hues a lot better.
