| Cologne Cathedral at sunrise |
Yes, Scott, probably a bit less vignette might be better. (I'm lowering the opacity on the vignette layer to 20%.) Yes, the brightest part of the sky was deliberately blown to white where the sun was brightest because that's what the sunrise looked like - too bright to hold detail even with the greater log range of my Mark I eyeball. Blowing out bright sunlight is sometimes the best way to render it.
And the the orange shape was some sort of smoke/water vapor that contrasted to the sky. I kept it 'cause I like it.
