I have a general question regarding unwanted sunlight that appears in the form of glare in a photo. A good example of what I'm referring to can clearly be seen in this pic. The sun is screaming through the hay loft above, my intention were to capture the moment and I succeeded. However, at the time I wasn't aware that of the unwanted "glare" until after the pic's were downloaded.

So here's my question, "is there any software programs that has the abilty to remove the glare from this pic"? Another question, is such glare spots considered to be negative or deprading to the pic?

I love this shot - but the glare over the doors is distracting - I have no clue how to fix it, but I'm looking forward to a tutorial from one of these regular guys!

PS, you have an email from me

For the record, Jackie was very kind to point out to me that I had misspelled the word "Sunburst". She was perfectly in line to do, in fact if the truth be told I appreciated the heads up on my blunder....thank you Jackie!

So here's another question for those in the know, Can such a misspelling blunder be corrected or if someone does screw up like this, does one have to live with it?

Stu, there are a number of ways you can correct sun flare. Looking at this one I would most likely use the rubber stamp tool and painstakingly begin to sample adjacent areas and start try and get the same color through out.

For instance in the door area you would start on the right side and slowly stamp out the flare until you get a larger area and just keep working away at it.

Honestly the best fix is to prevent the flare in the first place. You will encounter it when the sun is low in the sky and your lens hood is not going to help you much. I use my hand up in the air above the lens and move it around until I don't see the flair.

As long as you are aware of these situations it is fairly easy to prevent and it is much easier than stamping it out in post processing.

On the question about the spelling what program are you using for your processing? Hopefully you save your original and make a copy for processing. You then make another copy of the edited version and use that for posting. So if you have done that just pull up your edited photo and redo your frame.

Get a good polarizing filter, McTavish... you wear them on your eyes to cut glare, right coolwink ??? Bare glass on those expensive lenses is a bad idea, anyway... you're just asking for scratches. There's all kinds of good filters on hsolist right now... NIB whistle!!!

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!

    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.

    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
