Photo Editing: Flair for Flare

The post title is a misnomer – I don’t have a flair for flare, but the light coming through the leaves of the maple trees was so pretty I got myself off our deck and retrieved my camera.  But I’m just a point ‘n’ shooter with my Nikon Coolpix and what I got was a lot of flare.


I must have taken 30 shots – here’s a cropped version of one followed by the same shot with an edited-in lens flare.

As an aside, my husband planted these two maples about 20 years ago, from seed, when I said that the height of summer luxury is lying in a hammock with a cool glass of something, just a-swingin’ and a-rockin’ in a gentle breeze.  The trees are ready to handle a hammock now but I don’t know if I am.  If I got in he’d probably have to roll me out 😀    We’re nothing if not patient. 😉
