sunstar @ 22mm F/25, 1/3200s, ISO 320
I knew I wasn't going to get the effect I was looking for until I zoomed in magnifying the sun in the composition. BUT, doing so would completely brightout the photo unless there was something that would shade the full brightness of the sun. Call in the clowns.. I mean clouds.
Clouds were moving in and out during the shoot at times blocking the sun from view. For a brief moment a thin veil of clouds moved in front of the sun, but it wasn't enough to completely block it from view. It was at this point I got a couple shots that may show Venus as a dot on the face of the Sun. Problem was I couldn't see it on the LCD. I would have to wait until I viewed them on the computer to know for sure. Below is a image I took when the clouds partially blocked the sun.
Once on the computer I viewed the images full screen. YES! I did get the transit, but you can't see it in the whole image. Time to use the virtual scissors. Below is the cropped photo from the same image above.
