    Not a bad shot.

    But the foreground could be much better exposed.

    Good shot. I love that sparkle the Sun left on your pic. But somehow i feel that colour would have worked out better with this shot. Just my opinion though. B&W is nice too, but colour would have been even better i think...

    So yeps, good one!

    Thanks, the reason why i didn't post in colour was because the foreground was too underexposed and it would ruin the entire picture although i like the coloured version better.

    I shot something similar to this shooting into the sun, it did not work for me. Could be the lens, composition or whatever.

    I agree the foreground looks too dark washes out the details and the monotone idea washes it out even more. Is it meant to be something like a silhouette?
    Enlighten me...

    Wasn't meant to be a silhouette but i had to make it seem like it because i underexposed the foreground.

    The composition will work if we can see some detail from the ground.

    From the photo since you are shooting into the direction of the sun, in order to bring out the details from the ground you might need to stack at least three or more GND. As we see the silhouette is expected with no detail from the ground, thus The Rule of Third should be applied, the ground should be 1/3 of the photo, if possible give some room to the sun on the top and move it to the side also.

    Sometime planning the shoot is important, if in doubt shoot as many as possible with different expo, angle and composition, return home and PP to the result that you wish to have.

    smokeweed,

    that tree is gorgeous, and the sunburst works well for the image. as others have mentioned, the foreground blackness spoils this a little. i would suggest cropping it away but it would seem a little bit too tight. perhaps if you had chosen to give more space on top?
