    Maybe a dime a dozen, but you've still got to have the skill to be able to make a good image out of them and, for me, this one is right up there.

    What a sky!

    Normally, I'd say that to have any part of a blown sun in the image tends to kill it. Not here. I think the sky is so dramatic and powerful that it can compete with the blown sun and out attention is not dragged exclusively towards that bright spot.

    Well done, Jack. I think that's a good one.

    An impressive photo Jack. I imagine you only had a couple of minutes to capture that moment.

    What camera settings did you use? (There is no EXIF data in the picture.) It looks like a high ISO was used (probably to freeze the motion of the people on the jetty), because there appears to be some noise in the picture. Have you tried reducing it?

    Regards

    Tony

    Tony,
    Thank you too for your comments and praise. As you can see, the there was a space between the clouds where the sun shone through and it traversed it rather quickly.
    Apparently, saving the picture as a tiff removes the relevant data but from the original, it was shot at f/3.6, 1/1000 sec at ISO 160.
    Regarding your comment about noise, thanks and yes, I've gone back in and was able to reduce the noise a bit. It may have resulted from tweaking the contrast a bit.
