Ashok, I like the layer of mood changing colors as we move down from top to bottom. I think opening up the top warm region would add, also I would not sharpen the entire frame to avoid grains in lower two bands - may be just the region around the bird a bit. Thanks for sharing..

This is such a beautiful frame in camera there are clear 3 distinct colors, I think you could have enhanced them a little in post. SInce I have seen the RAW I can clearly see a lot of potential in processing especially lifting the colors. Please note when you shoot in RAW there is a natural tendency for the camera to play down the colors you need to restore it Post. I remember this was a glorious colorful sunrise and you need to get back that.

i love the colors in this image, ashok -
again, i seem to gravitate naturally to this blue-green/ ochre combination. going by what VMR has said - i would love to see the image when you have reworked it - it will look awesome. i tried a few crops on this image - following a thought in my mind, but i think the 2x3 works best - what you have here. the few bubbles (?) in the water give it a feeling of hot springs or a volcano, to my mind - it is dramatic!

Delight to watch this image, specially after witnessing this scene personally. I like the shape of the mist a lot and the light. Also, this image appears to have come from partially submerged under water housing (more so if you slightly darken the bottom part).
