Sunrise On the Bayou

Or is it a swamp?  What really is the difference anyway?  It turns out that the main difference between a swamp and bayou is the flow of water or the lack of flowing water.  At least I think that's right.  Making things a little more confusing, the body of water in this image is connected to Lake Pontchartrain  which I've learned recently is actually a tidal estuary.  

Anyway, this photo was actually taken by my twelve year old standing in the mud and muck along the side of the water.  I did the post processing and had the camera set to auto bracket three exposures but composition and framing was all done by a twelve year old.  And he even approved the few steps we did in post including some lightweight HDR, noise correction and some contrast changes.  Pretty cool.
