20mm and underexposed slightly at -0.5 EV so as not to blow out the highlights.

PP: Shadow/Highlight, curves, contrast, selective color, channel mixer all for minor adjustments. Some dodging and burning. Velvia Vision.

An outtake from the same series:

I chose the other image because of the vast blue sky and composition which I preferred, the outtake seems too generic.

I thought you were hard done by with this ranking. I rated it as one of the 3 best. Scores seem quite high on this challenge. Not sure what you could have done better. Perhaps the number of "sun" pictures "split the vote". Well done and thanks for giving me a picture I enjoyed.

Thanks to those who voted/commented.

Happy with my first 6+ score but a bit disappointed with the rank.

With all the entries with this title, you could have used a lyric like "Soon will be the break of day" from Blue Jay Way ;-)

one of the better pics of the "here comes the sun" series.
Obviously the best one is mine :-)
but seriously, this one has some interest in the picture apart from just sky and you've captured the ramge of colors well.

Excellent colors, composition, contrast, and capture. One of my top picks of all the "sun" shots entered. Well done!
