At first I thought this photo was a disaster with the sun star and crazy flame like flare above the bush but in time I have come to like it.

I like it other than the rainbow flare at the bottom

Ya. That is what I was referring to. At first I thought it ruined the picture but I now think it makes it more interesting. Tastes differ.

I agree with you I like that crazy flare....to me those things are like magic...especially when they are so arbitrary and strange.....Nice capture...!

Now that is a big cactus! Interesting photo, so different from the landscapes and nature that I am used to over here.
The flare.. well.. the thing is, its there. Its not so big that it would actually be "part of the composition", but it is so big (and colourful!) that you can't not notice it. But hey, some flare with UWA photos, especially in a desert, is unavoidable. You can try cloning it out, but I think the audience will survive even if you don't

I like the flare in a bizarre landscape. The burning bush

I vote the flair should stay, something that can't be reproduced, which makes it very interesting to view

To me, the glare seems emblematic of the strange, mirage-like sensations of the desert.
The stark landscape, the heat, blazing sun... I like it.

Thank you. You express well what I finally decided I liked about it.
