Challenge: Sun in Frame (Basic Editing)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6G
Location: Auburn Courthouse
Date: May 4, 2008
Aperture: 5
ISO: 100
Shutter: 4000
Galleries: Cityscape, Sky
Date Uploaded: May 4, 2008

Cropped, resized, sharpened. No other Edits.
I found the right spot but there were branches in the way and power lines above the building. Trying to use different lenses than ultra wide once in awhile. Last challenge I used my cheap 70-300 I scored around 4.7, so here's hoping I beat that hehe. My guess is 6.1.
Focal length 240 mm.

Post challenge: Thanks everyone for the votes and comments. I know a few didn't like the centered crop and little Oof parts. Here is a different version a little cleaner composition. :)

Incredibly crisp detail, particularly the weathervane. And the sun definitely has a presence here - I can't think of a better way to describe it. And whatever is out of focus simply adds texture to my eye - doesn't bother me a bit. Sometimes "clean" can be too clean.

I'm shocked this didn't do better, Joe - great shot.

It's great Joe! Foreground OOF objects really add to the pic.

Stunningly beautiful. This is in my top three.
The clouds middle left are a bit of a bother... but it didn't hinder my ten for you.

beautiful image; not sure if it's my eyes or the image, but seems the building lists just a wwee bit to the right side of the frame

It's all to easy to include too much in a shot like this, thus diminishing the importance of the subject but you've done a great job of including just the important elements. Images like this really are a pleasure to judge.

Nice silhoutte, a little too centralized IMO , maybe a tighter crop with less of the foreground would have more impact but still a nice shot 7
