Poor little A520 at it's lowest settings...well could have tried ISO - 50 if I thought about it. Still probably would have had trouble with the blown out sun's reflection.

I am so glad you moved up, even if it was because of a dq, it's an excellent shot. Congrats.
Edit. I didn't vote for many, didn't have time, but yours was my highest :)

Thanks for the comments. I know why I liked it, but I was looking for something more in the low 5s...not sure what went wrong ;)

The light was direct sunlight.

Should have ribboned. That 4th is indeed a robbery without mentioning colours - bet you're feeling a bit blue!

Seems too dark, but I know the challenge of dealing with all that reflected light.
