Sun and lens flares can be annoying, but they can also be a serendipitous happening. A well-placed or timed flare can add a wonderful hazy, sleepy feeling to an image. It can give a nice backlit affect. There are also times when you add a flare of some kind to an image. PhotoShop has several levels of flares you can add to an image. This image was taken in Stratford-Upon-Avon in England, and the sun flare was a natural, happy chance.
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO WITH SUN OR LENS FLARE (REAL OR ADDED).
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
