Phenomenal shot, Steve...Glorious sunburst (which I still need to master with my D800 cousin to your 800E") But the thing that really stuck me is how you have the lower portion of the farm: Fantastic exposure and spread of elements (the bruch) but also the visual impact of the curvature sensation in that portion! I LOVE that!!

that would be "frame" rather than Farm and "brush" instead of bruch...OMG I am terriblle :-)
