    Kind of weird but I like it. Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    I like it - but the cattails in the foreground look very dark. It looks like the camera metered on them and the sun is blown out because of it.

    Try a composite image - shoot two pictures, identical, except adjust it so that it meters for the sky in one shot and the foreground in the other - then combine them in PS.

    Lens flair to the sun. That is why it has a halo around it.

    Thanks for the tips. I will post some different takes on that idea and hopefully get some more constructive advice.

    Good idea! I shot this out of a parked car with a point and shoot so it would be hard for me to do the composite idea, however, this convinces me to buy a tripod so I can take multiple shots with different settings in the same location:lol:

    Is this any better? I am still clueless when it comes to the rules of photography but is this similar to what you were suggesting? Thanks again

    :D
