That is really awesome. Looks lot more "Halloween" than "Eclipse", though. You should put it in your screen in Oct.

Actually the EXIF data on that image is a bit misleading. You're right, the exposure necessary to capture the detailed eclipse was actually 1/8000 f40! and I had a Polarizer on too! But then in order to capture any foreground (even in silhouette) I fired off an immediate second shot at 1/320 f18. Then composited the two images (masking in the detailed eclipse).

It is pretty much the ONLY way I could do that shot.

So how'd you get that? f/18 and 1/320s isn't that dark, so you must've had a bunch of ND filters on or something...
