Adjusted the sun on an slightly overexposed screen, and that unfortunately bloomed the sun. When I saw it the next day on an uncorrected screen I immediately spotted the flaw (and knew the score would suffer). Well Im quite happy tons of comments and a PB, and I will post proces this one properly and hang it on the wall, thanks all for the comments. BTW foreground is the west coast of Elba, in the distance you can see corsica.

The sun is a bit too blobby for me but I love the rest of the scene.

i think the way the sun came out really hurt this otherwise nicely done image. love the lines created by the hillside and the mtns in the bg

The sun is over-blown and looks WAY over-processed. Don't know if this is straight from camera, or if it happened post-proc, but it is really bad. It is really too bad, because otherwise this shot is gorgeous - nice definition on the clouds, nice capture of bird in flight, and silhouette of the tree. Nice line of hills in background bottom left. Without the problems with the sun, this would be a 7 or 8 from me.

Amazing capture and scenery. The one thing I don't like about it is the weird sun. It looks like a random hole or stain on the photo.

What's wrong with the sun ?
05/07/2008 11:35:20 PM
nice... i like the fill light use or shadow/hightlights on this however it look a bit over processed in the end because of the sunburst just blown out and no gradual gradiance on the sky

Very nice composition. I'd like the sun was not all that blown up...

Almost great. There is blue rim about the sun that distracts from the fantastic composition.
