Nice commercial shot. Very difficult processing to avoid banding in the sky though. You have to play around with levels and curves very very gently to avoid artifacting and posterization.

HI from teh CC Club

What a golden day that seemed to be!

My eye is drawn all over the place for this, looking for something other than the sun to stare at. Obviously the sun is the first thing that you see as it is the big bright thing. The sun also appears to have 6 sides.

i like the softness of the shot as it seem like summer haze. To be honest the sun is killing me, if there was no sun and just all those golden hues, i think you would have placed higher.

You have good DOF, you do need a start point though and I can not find one. The sharpness is lacking, even though you used Gblur, there still needs to be a certain amount of crispness to it

I see hills or clouds in the background, if you ever get the chance to shoot this again without the sun, please do, as I think it would make a stunning shot.
