One of the great things, you can do with HDR, is to take photos of the sun and still have nice exposure in the whole shot. This is one of those occasions. Check out the original (0EV) shot, to see the difference.
Again I have only a small idea where this was taken. I took it last week while traveling, and we just stopped by a random sunflower field along the way. I took only few shots, as there were so many bees in the field, I didn’t want to push my luck :)
