Challenge: Lens Flare (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2011 challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-7D
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
Date: Sep 2, 2011
Date Uploaded: Sep 2, 2011

Couldn't get lens flare in other attempts -- decided to try to get it in a controlled environment.

The only thing I had was a dying flower.

Got a flare -- had the idea that perhaps it was the soul escaping the flower.

However, I think the commentor was right -- it looks more like a sneeze!!

Btw, It was done with a constant light source. Unfortunately, my constant light source was attached to a light box, so it made it challenging.

Here's what it looked like:

This was ribbon material if I've ever seen it. Just fabulous.

Great work Wendy. 10. Poster boy clarity for a nifty 50 f/1.4 :) (In the right hands of course)

Very unique flare, Wendy. Yes, it looks like whatever it is, it's emanating from the flower. Congrats on the HM!

What a cool effect you have created.

Lovely work. The flare adds to the image in the spirit of the challenge. It is neither a star burst flare nor an 5-6-7-8-9 sided aperture flare.

I'm not sure what it is about this image, but it sets me in mind of 21_F.gif vawendy. Great image. There'd be a completely different appreciation of this image was the flare not there. Good construction.

Looks like the flower just sneezed. I like it.

Wow! Gorgeous colors. My only critique is that it doesn't look like a flare - more like a humming bird buzzing by.
