Too much black? I'd crop out half of the hills (or at least a third) to lengthen the shot into more or a rectangle.

Great composition here on this shot. And it is just very striking to see the sun so close up at that focal length.

Excellent work!

one thing I would say though (not strictly related to the image) the jpg quality seems low and i see some blocking in the sky.

thanks so much for the comment.

yes, you're absolutely right regarding the jpg quality... the uploaded image has been re-sized at a subpart quality level. I think this may be something like 4 or 5 on PSCS3. It was done more as deterrent to someone just ripping the photo, but I see it can be annoying as a viewer as well.

The print I submitted is much larger and of quality level 12.

Yea, it doesnt detract from the image at all, just wasnt sure if it was done by accident, either way, still love the image.
