As the Sun is passes from behind the moon just after 3rd Contact, an image of a "Diamond Ring" is formed. Many people find that diamond ring pictures of an eclipse are the most attractive. I guess it is because it is a lot more interesting than a simple ring, and a lot more dramatic because it implies dynamic motion.
