Photographed at f5.6 as I wanted to keep the sun looking soft.
f8 or f11 would normally have been my choice for sharpness and big depth of field but those small apertures can lead to sharp lens flare lines coming from specular highlights (the sun in this case) which I didn't want on this photo.
Here's what the sun would have looked like at f11: http://ianbramham.aminus3.com/image/2010-02-15.html
