According to Wikipedia sunrise is the instant at which the upper edge of the sun appears above the horizon in the east, and dawn is the time when the sky begins to lighten, but before the sun actually appears, and daybreak can apply to either sunrise or dawn.

Sunset colours are usually more brilliant than sunrise colours, however, this showcase features some very vivid sunrise colours, along with the paler colours usually associated with colder weather.

I love using and learning Photoshop, and I also enjoy creating resources to share with the world. I am at my happiest when I have free time to further explore all that Photoshop has to offer and learn more about its powerful built-in tools. I hope people enjoy either using or learning from my free resources, and welcome any hints and tips - and of course, if you would like to offer a free resource on this site, please don't hesitate to contact me (top right of the page).
