Default Yard Shots in the Rising Sun

Hey everyone-

I was hoping to get some opinions and advice on some sunrise shots I was able to get a few days ago. Are any of them good enough for RP?

Thanks for the words of wisdom!

The first one might have had a chance if there had been somethig on the rails closer to you. The fifth shot might have a chance if you have a vertical instead of a horizontal. Out of curiosity, what kind of camera do you have? I guess you're Saving For Web instead of Sve As. I was curious about your camera settings, but there is no EXIF data.

2 one cropped so the pole on the left is out and the sky needs trimmed to so the wires are out of the shot, Show us before posting to RP as I think your colors need more to. Have fun i think your shots or eye for photos is getting better.

Joe-

I use a Nikon Coolpix L100, so nothing special; just a higher quality P&S. There should be EXIF data on RP, and I do use "Save As" rather than "Save for Web."

I'll try to crop some of them according to the advice given and see what happens.

I think a shot like that but just showing the symmetry of the rails going in different directions would have worked better in that kind of lighting conditions IMO.
