This photo submitted by Brandon Pinette was shot with a Nikon D40 with an exposure of 1/400 sec at f/20, ISO 200 with flash. The subject in this photo isn’t clear. The foreground is cropped and completely silhouetted, while the sky is large and empty expect for a few clouds. The sun itself does not make for an interesting subject. You need more elements such as a beautiful sky or rocks or an ocean.
