Setting star
This is a shot of the same spot at Ruby Beach in Olympic National Park as the previous one posted a few days ago, except that the sun is framed to shine through the haystack. I have tried to get starburst shots of the rising/setting sun with the EF-S 10-22 a few times, never satisfied. For one thing, there are flares all over. I had to get rid of many here. Secondly, the effect is not as crisp as I would like. I don't know if a hood would have helped, but I would have expected better flare resistance from this lens. I have seen people create fake starbursts with filters, but that's not my cup of tea. This is my best effort so far. I have a few more that I'll work on later. Read my entire travel blog here:
