Hmm, I'm struggling to see past the halo backdrop to the trees and the mass of the dark foreground.

Thanks for looking and your feedback. The main idea of the photo was to capture the faint light illuminating the cattails in the center of the photo. I wanted everything surrounding them and the trees which the sun is shining through to be much darker to emphasize that effect. Here is also the color version posted in the landscape forum (perhaps edited so that some more foreground is visible - maybe not quite as dark as in the B&W version although on my monitor and to my eyes they do seem to capture that effect I was after).
