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!!!

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
