Shot of a small weed in front of the morning sun about 3-4 m away from the camera . A dark vertical line on the right side of the sun is an electric pole which I couldn't avoid.

This photo is inspired by a picture I saw a long time ago at www.photo.net. Unfortunately, I am not able to find the link again.

Post processing: Cropped at around 80-90 percent of the full frame. Adjustment layers: Curve, Hue and Saturation; Noise Ninja

Post Challenge: Wow! I can't believe I am in top 20 with my first entry. Thanks everyone for your comments and encouraging words.

Like the tones in this one. Very nice. Dynamic and peaceful at the same time.

Clever use of bokeh. Everyone else has gone for little points of light - you've chosen a large orb of light. I think it works brilliantly with the minimalist composition. Nice sharpness on the main subject too.

very nice! I really like the silhouette againts the "bokehed" sun, it has an almost abstract feeling to it.... good luck ;)

Very well done. I love the composition. I love the colors. The focuse is tac sharp. So based on both technical and artistic merits you must be presented with a 10 ( let me tell you I did not give many of those out in this challenge)

I love this! This is a lovely clean shot and your wheat/grass strand really stands out against your bokeh background! 8 from me!

Stunning. 10

this looks almost too good to be real. Very cool bokeh of the sun! even though the subject is more of a shadow than a foreground per se, the foreground is a shadow! cool!

I think you're the only person who thought to use the sun as the "out of focus" piece! Very beautiful! 10!!
