Honestly this is one of these images that are just fine straight out of the camera, but here is some fun. :slight_smile:

And this is one of the rare cases when I find a center placed subject pleasing. I like how you cropped it.

I like centering the sun, (and tend to do that a lot) unlike other subjects, because often it is not the sun itself that is the subject, but rather the relationship of the form to the elements around it. shuts up :slight_smile:

Thanks for the kind words. (I did mean what I say through, the image is very nice out of the camera)
