I was standing in the shade created by the statue, the sun was firmly behind the huge head of Bahubali. The circle of enlightenment you see was created by the fringe light, not direct light.

I am sure you know how to take care of the equipment. I was wondering if you had any tricks of the trade to share.

No tricks, don't shoot at the sun generally between 10AM to 4PM.

TSK, this is a nice exposure. Its got a fairy tale-ish feel to it thanks to the calm waters and a slightly orange-ish (Whats with my 'ish's today?) horizon.
You should have tried HDR in this. Would have turned out unbelievably terrific.
Is there a way the lens flare in the bottom portion could have been avoided. I guess not. Unless we get it out in PP somehow. What do you think?

Happened due to smaller aperture (high in terms of number).

Rudra is right, I made the aperture small. Lens flare is unavoidable on the kit lens in such shots.

My dear, lens flare will happen any which way. I don't think it has anything to do with kit lens or not.

I heard that multi coated L lenses are more resistant to lens flare etc.,

You heard it right but in a situation like that, you'll see almost no difference. Multi coating is there to minimize internal reflections (flare).

This is on my first day 19th Mar 2007 that I took out my 400D. This shot almost burnt my right eye in 2 to 3 secs(thats why its not focused and out of center). I suffered 2 days with out proper vision. It was 6:52Am I was excited to click my first Solar Eclipse and that too with my newly found love :P. I was luck enough to get out of it safely. This was Just morning sun I cant imagin what it wud have been had it been full and around a hour later.

fantastic. if you crop the bottom and a little bit to the right, it would look even better.
