Default Eclipse of 5/20/12

Did anyone get an image of it?
I tried with 6 different cameras. I got some beautiful and colorful abstractions but could not get anything that looked like an eclipse. Did anyone get it? If so, what settings did you use

I got a couple of shots. I used ISO 100, -5EV, f/32, 1/5000sec and I shot in RAW. I then processed the heck out of it in Photoshop by increasing the highlights and adjusting the exposure and contrast and anything else that made the image look like an eclipse. I did not have any filters over the lens. I waited until totality so as too cut down on the amount of direct sunlight that came into the camera. I shot in short bursts and immediately lowered the lens to avoid overheating. AND I got really lucky.
Cheers,
Steve
