Here's my take at the eclipse this evening. This was my first time capturing an event like this. I used my trusty EF 70-210 f/3.5-4.5, and a little cropping and editing later, this is the result. Enjoy!

Thanks! No filters whatsoever on any of these shots.

#2 was shot at ISO 160, f/8, 1/500th shutter speed @ 210mm. I did a 33% crop in RAW, and a few other little touch-ups.
