2nd Sun

All of my sunset shots came out with this "2nd" sun. What can I do to prevent this?

Thanks in advance!

Do you have a filter on your lens? If so try taking it off and see if that helps.

Ahh... I do. Just a UV filter. I'll try it. Thanks!

Agree with taking the UV filter off. Also try adjusting you EV +1. Shots like this can be difficult as you are loosing light quickly. Still a nice shot.. JIMBO

I agree with the UV filter theory, sometimes though it's the lens... f.e. my copy of Tamron 28-200 was helpless with these kind of situations...
