***Challenge #136*** Lens Flare***

Thanks local37 for the opportunity to host this challenge.

The new challenge is "Lens Flare." The deadline will be noon EST January 10, 2012 with results announced one or two days afterward.

Lens flare is something I’ve noticed being used increasingly to add warmth to portraits, and of course has long been used as an accent for landscape images. Images will be judged on overall artistic value and the extent to which lens flare contributes to the strength of the image. Images do not necessarily need to shot straight into the sun for this contest (see my second example). Here's a link for some inspiration. http://pixelcurse.com/photography/25-artistic-lens-flare-effects-in-digital-photography

Don't forget - Please reply to the FIRST ORIGINAL post if you are submitting an entry. Be sure to RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE TITLE OF YOUR ENTRY.
Here are a few examples:

R U L E S:
The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going.

1- You post ONE image (if you post more than one image, the first will be your entry in the challenge).

2- The host chooses a winner after closing. The decision of the judge (the Host) is final. The judge is not eligible.

3- The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 72 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

4- ANY NIKON CAMERA IS ALLOWED (A P&S used by a member of this forum is also allowed).

5- Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put a (CC) next to the title of your image [e.g. Sunset with Canada Geese (CC)].

Please embed your image in the thread. Try to resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (900 pixels on the longest side works best).
