i the 2nd shot.. you are shooting directly into the sun.. there is really not much you can do to prevent flare in some lenses when doing so.. the flags that i told you about work when the sun is above or to the side of the shot, like in the 1st image you posted..

btw- i do like that 2nd image quitea bit.. i think you could open up the foreground a little bit in photoshop to bring out more detail.. but the texture is nice in this one..

also using any filter increases your risk of flare.. so you may retry without the filter on it..

a multicoated filter is better than one that is not coated, but they will all increase your risk for flare..

Excuse me, but I don´t understand what "open up" means. I will do it without any filter next sunset shot.

In this case it means "brighten" . Like the picture...But the foreground really needs a boost in luminosity...

Bye bye.

i preffer the first version

the lens flare on that can be taken out with clone tool in photoshop, by selecting the right size brush and spray patterns, and spending a bit of time, zoom in to do it.

id be more than willing to give it a go for u but would prob need full image

belibeli,

when i said "open up" i meant make the shadows lighter.. so use the shadows/highlights tool and brighten the shadows.. or usea layer mask and brighten the whole image and then using the black brush unmask the sky to keep its darker colors..
