Odd white coloration on photos? Is it lens flare? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
A lens hood is far better protection for your front element, and it will only affect image quality in a good way, provided you bought the correct hood.

To the OP: If you want, I can try and remove the flare for you, it might be a pretty easy fix with the right tool.

Any chance you'd be nice enough to share your PP technique?

I was thinking a graduated filter in Lightroom, and just add some contrast. With luck, 1 grad is enough, or if th flare gets really bad down low, perhaps a second.

It's not rocket science, but I don't think the OP will buy Lightroom (or Photoshop) and learn how to use it for one quick fix.

What kind of filter do you recommend?

So I should get a hood and a filter possibly?

I think I'll be ok. I just cropped the image up a little bit. This is literally the second time I've shot outside with my new camera so I wasn't sure what happened. It gets dark so early now and the weekends haven't been that nice. I was very eager to shoot.

Thanks for the help.
