Have had NO time for photography due to buying a house, selling a house, moving from one house to another. Very time consuming and then work has been relentless as well. Finally had time this morning and thankfully the sun was shining brightly. I watched "The Rookie" last night at home, Dennis Quaid as a High School Baseball coach and then goes on to play in the majors. Anyway, during one scene, they showed him with a baseball in his hand and with the sun shining through the scene causing all kinds of great lens flare. Thought I'd try my hand at it and I came away with what I think is a pretty good attempt. Not so easy to do. Used a flash to fill in light on my arm and the ball. The Leica 50mm lens worked out great for this challenge. Wonderful flare and tones.
