Oh no, not a pun! Yes, its time for the punishing groans. Or the --- that was two thirds of a pun --- "P U". Anyway, I thought I'd post a shot that utilized "flare" and challenge the rest of you to post your shots that include a bit of good old fashioned flare to "light" up your photos. Here is the shot:


I was going to call the shot "Sunbathing" - but well, that just didn't have enough "flair" for a post of this calibre!

Cheers,
rfs

I'm sure someone else on G1 has a shot that has "flare" in it. Or does everyone use such good lens hoods that they never get flare or even try for it as a photographic effect? I thought we'd see 20 or 30 examples of flare. Post your images today and bask in the sunlight created by your flair (oops "flare").
Cheers,
rfs

Sorry, have none to post due to the fact they go to the recycle bin immediately.

Once, I missed one and had sent a DVD of the session to the model for her use. I was floored that she put it up on ModMay and it is still there to this day? After that I gave up on my views of what others think is good or bad! This is from her site:

Actually a nice shot to play with in PS and see what effects you might do. For example a Curves adjustment of the subject would make the model pop a bit more. I would crop with a rule of thirds in mind to get rid of the top part of sky and chop some off the right.
I think a model might like the as is photo because its "different" or "artsy" and that often appeals to some models.
Cheers,
rfs

Please, if you will...can you "work" some magic on it and see what you come up with? -Jim

Didn't have but a moment or two, but here are a couple of variants showing cropping change. The left example is done using the sliders in the CS3 Raw converter (which works on JPG files). That took about 30 seconds. I then loaded it to PS and used CEP 3.0 Bleach Bypass filter to push the constrasts to the extreme to recover as much as possible from the blown out condition.

Here is a side by side of the two results:


And here is one with a blue graduated split filter (CEP 3.0) combined with another variant of the same Bleach ByPass, but holding back the dress partially from the effect.


Cheers,
rfs
