How To Avoid Flare
NOT! This is completely untouched by CS2. Filmschool includes how to avoid lens flare. Any landscape photographer is taught how to avoid flare. Use a filter. Whoops! I left my polarizer at home. Keep your lens away from the sun. Not likely for a sunset composition. Use a hood. Not available given space limits.
Answer-Embrace the flare! Compose for what you have, rather than what you want. The natural light gave me the contrast and the detail. The fact of a total blowout by the sun in its area worked out. This is my favorite of 50 images.
