BIG sunflare at sunset..

Why yes, there was some serious sunflare agony going on over here over the past few days/weeks/month. Really.. I do take my I Heart Faces themes seriously, and this one was just hard to nail down. So, I chose the subtle picture for the contest, but this was the other contender, with BIG flare (but the bug hunter just seemed too dark). I think I could probably attend a week long “sunflare” session and still come out not knowing what I needed to do; perhaps there’s a reason why the average person looks at a sunflare shot and says “What did you do wrong? Can you take that picture again?” And maybe.. just maybe… we “artsy photog types” just need to listen…

  1. I agree. This is a lot harder than it looks. I think the “accidental” sun flare is so much easier than “trying” to get it! Either way, your photo is wonderful and I think you caught the flare (and face!) very well!

  4. I think this is very cool!! I tried it with my son, but half of his head was missing and it looked funky. I like his expression too. Fun!
