Yeah I think I’ll be doing the same. Good old YouTube. Haha.

As a first attempt that’s nice…

Did you shoot in RAW as I always find that allows a lot more flexibility when processing the image and may even allow you to recover details or dampen down overbought areas. That said, pointing direct at the sun you are always going to have a blown out section.

Useful to bracket shots or use ND filters in those circumstances.

Thanks,
Can’t remember what settings I used as I wanted to get it up and get some shots. Haha. I’ve got 6 different filters so next time I’ll just keep bringing it down and swap them to get the best results.
Thank you for your advice👍

I have the full polar pro range from ND 4,6,8 16 32 64 latter 3 I have the polarizer filters too just learning all that side of things, up to now ND4 is my one for sunrise sunset , 16 I tried on a sunny day it was blackout did not work so on with the trials

Not bad, it’s a nice shot. Is that the Mavic 2 pro you used?

I use an 8 for sunny days and get decent results. Going higher needs more practice and experimentation with ISO.

Mines just the mavic pro 1. Slowly moving up models, as I used to have a spark.
