Good day everyone

I constantly read the following lines in this forum "Nice photo, should have remove the lense flare though". What is the best way to actually do this?

First of all using a lens hood to reduce thepossibility of its occurrance.

Secondly, I think using the (Photoshop, PSP...) "CLONE" tool with a well feathered brush and remove the bright spots by substituting them with the surrounding areas...

If you have a filter mounted on the Panasonic adapter you are going to have to live with some flare but a hood will help.

And in mosrt photos it would be difficult to remove.

If you are always aware of where the sun is and where any bright reflections are, you can minimize the chances of flair. I always try to position myself with the sun behind me. If not, I use a lens hood.

As Genece indicated get rid of the 72mm glass on the Pana adapter and get one of the others that allow the use of a 62mm filter very near the Leica lens. Or as they say if that is not the problem just do not shoot into (45 degs or so ) the sun. You can spot lens flare in the EVF if you are looking for it. Cheers. Bob

Thanks all. I do realize that the best way to remove lense flare is to exclude it from the original, but sometimes flare is unavoidable and I was just wondering your techniques for removing it using photoshop. Thanks for the cloning tip Narmer.

Probably no need to say this, but make sure your lens is perfectly clean; any dirt causes more flare..
