This was taken on my last full day in China. Location - The Great Wall. It has been cloudy and rainy for weeks, so we got really lucky with the gorgeous clear sky today. The picture doesn't convey how COLD it was... about -15F.

I'm sure I'll receive a lot of comments on the narrow cropping, but I had no choice as there were people on either side. So I just cropped them out and was left with a narrow picture. Oh well!

Cropped, levels, USM, a ND filter to make the sky a bit blue-er and that was it!

This would make a really cool print. I would have cropped out just a bit of the sun orb at the top. I like having the sun there, but not quite that much. The mountain scenery in the background just makes this shot. Wonderful opportunity for a great shot here and I'm glad you took advantage of it and shared it!

Love the quality of the photo but I wish you had not cropped so much of it.

Wow, crop out most the sun and let the light and shadow on the wall and the mountains do the talking.
