You know...I have been getting numerous requests for a large format of that sunrise for screen savers.
What happened was the camera was set to 800 ISO from my ISS capture a couple of nights before. I forgot to return the ISO setting to a realistic 80 or 100 ISO...ergo, the original image was quite grainy. I passed the images thru a noise filtering program, and they cleaned up very well.
Let's what what I can do from the original exposure and post the large format here.

Large Format of the Chicago Sunrise of 14 June 2004
Due to a great demand from email, pm's and other boards across the net, I have reworked the nice sunrise we had in Chicago with the mysterious dark cloud shadow pillars. Many of you wish to use it as a screen saver. I am humbled by your appreciation...
Don't feel bad, I do the same thing all the time. And it's always when you need to take that split second or it's gone type of pic. I was out a the inlaws this past weekend, and still had the camera set on long exposures from astro pics, and when three deer, mom and two babies, came through the yard, I had to scramble like mad to get the camera settings fixed to take their picture.
Okay, everybody. On the count of three...
