How Not to Participate in the Daily Shoot Challenge!
Daily Shoot - Lens flare is typically avoided, but can be used deliberately to good effect. Make a photo with creative lens flare ( http://dailyshoot.com/assignments/203 ) .
I should have skipped this challenge, but since I invested the time I decided to post my pic anyway. It rained most of the day, but when the sun finally broke through the clouds late afternoon, I decided to try for a shot not of a lens flare, but using a lens flare to create a statement. The problem was I had no idea what statement I wanted to make. The grain elevators were in shadow, but I wanted to use the flare to emphasize the stairs. I exposed for the building to get detail, knowing that the sky would be blown out, but somehow I thought that might add to the effect. End result - I didn't really know what I was going for, and I'm even more unsure about what I got.
