Incredible shot and composition... Can you share some more details on the camera, lens and settings?

Canon 5D Mark II, 500L, ISO 100. Forgot what the shutter speeds were, but one was very fast and the other a bit slower.

The Exif data says the focal length is 100.

Impossible. At that focal length, the sun size would be much, much smaller. Sun size is approximately 1/100 of focal length (1/107 to be precise), hence 500mm lens would generate a close to 5mm sun on a full frame.

The EXIF data is all wrong anyway, since I had to take the two frames separately and combine them in Photoshop.

You mean one frame was shot at 100mm and the sun at 500mm (and the EXIF picked up only the former)?

No, they were taken around 10 seconds apart and mounted on a tripod. The shutter speed in the EXIF also shows 1/640 - implausibly slow for shooting directly into the sun, Given that I was processing other photos at the time, I probably copied both images over a third image, just out of laziness...
