    Many thanks for the comments and ideas. Yeah, 9 stop ND. As to exp time, did some calculations based on time needed for f/22 no ND, and worked backwards, doubling the time with each ND stop. Gets you close, and then empirically make changes as needed. Just luck clouds moving N to S that eve, and not along parallel paths, thus the movement somewhat away from center. Since I never really got into The Dark Side of the Moon, I didn't even spend the dough on Wish You Were Here...;)

Congratulations to the group. This was a great crop to look at and hear about.

    Congratulations dk. Sorry I didn't vote for this - the picture is beautiful.
Maybe it's because I expected Pink Floyd behind the Title...
Damn! This was such a difficult field!

    Very long exposure for the time of day, did you use ND filters? I like the blur in the moving clouds, and colours are great, just think you could have used a better chair still very high up in my favourites.

    Had great potential, I don't like how clumsy the clouds look, kind of spoils the image, the chair is kind of in an awkward place as well I would of used the ROT, still you made my TT!

    Really, this is quite impressive. I'm guessing the blur is cloud movement but what puzzles me is it looks like the clouds are moving away from the centre of the sun--can't figure that out. At 119s I suspect you used a ND filter - how did you know how long to keep the shutter open?

    I find this image disturbingly sharp and a bit bright. Nice idea though.
