Christmas Morning, UK

At just gone six am on Christmas morning I was out taking some pictures of the sunrise; damn it was cold, but worth while. The Location is Burton On Trent, England.

The photograph was shot in RAW using the Shutter Priority settings on a Canon EOS 400d (Kiss X); F/5.6; 1/60 Sec; ISO 400; Pattern Metering Mode; 55 mm Focal Length; -0.7 (-2/3 of a stop) Exposure Compensation; Flash Compuslory Supression; EF-S18-55 F3.5-5.6 USM Lens. This picture was created with Adobe photoshop CS2.
