I think it would've looked better without the lens flare; perhaps if you had waited a few more minutes. But a nice-looking shot nonetheless!

I actually like the lens flare. It gives the photo an artistic element that is interesting to the eye.

Nice shot

I've never really liked lens flare, and often wondered why they have such effects in PS and other editting software, HOWEVER - this shots is really enhanced with the lens flare. Good stuff !!

i agree about the lens flare in most cases.

it takes a discerning eye to know when to use it.

this one rode the fence with me for a bit, but decided to post to get opinions.

thanks, guys for the comments.

This is one of the few cases in which lens flare enhances the photo. It adds some nice depth to the scene. Good work.

i definatly agree that one must be very discriminating when applying lens flare to

a shot. this one seemed to cry out for something different.

i think it worked out.

thanks everyone for commenting!!
