This is an amazing capture, I can see why it was an award winner! I know how hard it can be to get the Sun properly exposed, and this is WONDERFUL!

Gorgeous. I love zoomed sun shots, and this has wonderful colours and patterns from the clouds, nicely balanced by the rocky silhouettes.

This is beautiful work! I really like the layers of colors & overall warm feel of the image. I wish it was with more wide angle view.

Wow... absolutely gorgeous. Technicals, impact and composition all in one. If I had voted, this is an easy 10.1. That has to be the most amazing sun I've seen (in a photo), and the clouds in front of it... this is just a spellbinding capture. I'm really glad you were there to get this - who knows what we'd have got from an unskilled photographer. Seriously - I can't stop looking at this. I guess I'll have to buy a print!
