Very nice photo, I have attempted similar images before without much success. You have given me the ambition to try it again!

Tony, all of your gallery images are fantastic! To achieve this effect, by shooting wide open, what aperture did you use - 2.8 or more open than that? Also what shutter speed were you using and where was the sun while you were taking this picture? Did you use a certain type of filter? I have some specular highlights in my shots using 2.8 but nothing as spectacular as this - I'm wondering where the biggest difference lies, technically? (other than the fact that you are a great photographer....)
