    The small aperture made a nice effect to the sun. Well composed, good work.

    My #1 vote. Only suggestion is that you could maybe crop out the bottom portion before the flowers start.

    I love it! Using F20 got you that great star-burst. I like doing this type of thing with night scenes but I've never thought of trying it with the sun. Well seen and captured.

    The black and white treatment adds an ethereal quality and really showcases the sun's rays.

    i assume it was taken in B&W. possible bigger crop at base of the picture and emphasis the boken in the edges of the plant

    If anything the star burst looks unreal but I've had the same effect myself. Love the lighting and the low angle and the way the clouds circle the sun. B&W was the right choice - it looks and feels cold. Super shot!

    Nice perspective and "starburst" sun.
