Depends on the atmosphere at the time, heat-variations and wind being the 2 biggest factors.

There are times the air's so still and clear that stars *don't* twinkle. A day like *that* you may get a nice crisp shot, dunno.

Chuckling....thanks for the vote of confidence, Gene! I see some people put sun photos on here and the edges are as crisp as can be--makes me envious! :)

Whoa, it looks all "nuculer"! :D

About "sharpness", don't forget that you're seeing the sun through the longest possible pathway through the air as you can get, ie, along the horizon. Think about looking across a hot barbecue grille and how wavy everything behind it looks.

Hell, a few weeks ago I tried taking a pic of a barge, and it was *totally* wavy when zoomed in, and that was just about a mile away!

Thanks much, Ann! :-) I was leaving Duluth as the sun was setting through a heavy haze, showing the whole disk---just had to pull over and take a bunch of pics!

Thanks so much, Steve! I shot this using the 'auto exposure with adjustable settings' mode with the metering mode set on a central dot and centered the dot right on the sun itself and this is what I was able to get. It's not as sharp around the edges as I would have liked it to be but this Sony doesn't like either bright sun or dark shots--I have a terrible time getting anything decent in either light. Can't get lightning AT ALL even in "movie" mode---it just won't grab it. The sun was setting through a strong haze so it was toned down considerably, which was the only way I could ever get this shot.

Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs---too hot for me. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!
