I usually start using a Graduated 3 stop ND filter about 20-30 minutes before sunrise to help balance the brightness of the sky with the rest of the shot. Then sometimes in post processing with Lightroom I'll add a little fill light and/or use the brush adjustment to get some details back out of the shadows, but I didn't do that with these shots.
Lastly, which of these shots is your favorite and why? Or are you working on one that you didn't show that will blow all the others away?
My favorite is the 6:18. I love the light and the soft shadows 20-30 minutes before sunrise. This light is great for black and whites as well.
And no, I don't have another secret mind blowing super photo I'm working on. Those were the best I got.
