Sunrise this morning. Should I clone the birds out? CC welcome and appreciated.
A frigid cold but burning sunrise this morning in Oregon over Mt. Hood and the Columbia River. Not a portfolio image, but wanted to share anyway because the sky was insane. Normally, I would take an opportunity like this to do a significant long exposure. However, the overpass we were shooting on was quite shaky and made that basically impossible. Exposure aside, looking for any feedback or constructive criticism. Many frames had birds in them. Some looked good, others had to be cloned out. Do you think the birds in this frame should be left there, or removed? Thoughts on composition? No real foreground to play with at this vantage point other than the flat water. Wondering if maybe the mountain should not be dead center.
