Wow - love the contrasts of the two halves (left and right sides). Maybe try crouching down even lower to capture more foreground, or getting only half the sun in the image? But these are just ideas - there isn't much with this that i would change.

That closed down aperture, direct sun really works well with this image....and you still managed to write that deep blue...very nice....even the blotchiness that can come with small aperture around the ring of the sun is very minimal....well done...

I like the sun placement, starburst, general composition. But the silhouette, mentioned in the title, is a not prominent enough. Maybe if you brighten the photo a little? Or a 16:9 crop?
But its a very nice landscape, I would just show this as a landscape photo and ignore the silhouette of a person

Lols, yeah - I just hoped that people would ignore the silhouette.

The title isn't really a proper title, just what I named it when posting. Thanks for the comments!

Nice shot. The sun is rendered well as is the water.
