I’ve tried a few times to get a nice shot into the sun where it ends up as a small star-burst in the photo. Until now they’ve usually ended up with lots of lens flare and/or just being blown out. This time it turned out much better. I’m not sure what the difference was, as I used a small aperture previously as well. Maybe the higher ISO setting, or getting the sun partially obscured by the branch. Either way I’m pretty happy with how this shot turned out.
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
