I got some really nifty flare (unintentionally) the other day when the sun was shining but when there was a very very fine spindrift floating on the air. I had put my fleece glove over my ski pole (which was planted in the snow), and was thinking of composing the sun as if the glove was grabbing it. When I processed the picture, this is what I had:



Kind of festive, with those Christmas colors, don't you think?

How about some Indoor flare?

From my 12 days of Christmas shoots.

Thanks John, George, and Javier! Jeff, looks like Thomas the Tank Engine smiling there. George, the light in your shot is very beautiful.

Shot specifically for the flare, easy to get with my Vivitar 28/2.8.

Johan/wowtip I can't see any photo.

littledrawe if you would really push the contrast and shadows to the max in those two pics I'm sure you'd get much more from those rainbow rays.

John/jheu nice shot with the 28Viv. Here's another Viv28,



BTW here's a comprehensive flare test with UWA and with fisheyes.

Georg, I almost expect Glinda the good witch to pop out of the huge flare "bubble" you have there and help Dorothy out. Nice shot.

Thanks a lot John. Seems like both of our Vivitar wide angles can do some nice flaring if you know how to tease it out.
