Hey,

What do you think of this shot? Is the round lens flare distracting? Should I clone it out or should I keep it in the photo? I could go either way, but would like some other opinions....

Thanks

I see your dilemma... it's not the coolest looking flare, and it's quite consicuously placed, not streaming off in a cool random direction. I thought about it, and I say leave it, since you would moist certainly have flare in this situation and it adds interest to the image.

Have you thought about replacing it with fake flare? Like this?

id just spend time and care and clone out the big flare spot and itll look just fine

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"the lens flare david added is ok except it adds 2 more spots in the wrong place for where the sun is shining

Thanks. The "fake" flare looks good. I've used it before, but never thought about replacing the real flare with this. I like it!

I think I'll spend a few minutes cloning it out and look at them side by side then decide.



Thanks again.

Just to be different - I think I would carefully clone it out - leaving the streams of light. There are times when we manage these shots without the flare - so why not make it look like that?

:roll:
