The 3rd picture shows a nice 'star' sun. I was trying to get the same effect two days ago, but even with F22 on the 14-24 and 24-70 I did not get the star effect.

How did you manage to get yours?

Marcello: Thanks for taking the time to comment. For that shot I used a simple two-exposure blend technique... one exposure for the sun star (with everything else severely underexposed) and one for 'everything else' (with the sun completely blown out) then hand-blended in PSCS3... a sort of 'manual HDR' -- it isn't all that hard to do after some practice.

Best wishes
