    Cool effect, the first one is the best

    Must have been fun. Did you also see the flares in the viewfinder, or did you have to download to your computer to see what happened?

      Thanks Zafar, Yes, being that I was pretty much shooting directly into the sun I did see the overall brightness, but I would not have seen the star effect as the lens opens to it's widest aperture when viewing through the viewfinder, and only closes down when you follow through with the shot. The first shot was at f/11, but I was probably viewing and setting up the shot wide open at f/2.8, and typically that would not produce that nice star/sun burst effect.

        Thanks for the reply. Did you see the flare in viewfinder?

        The reason I ask is that I have some shots with flare and do not remember seeing it in viewfinder when shooting...

          To be honest with you Zafar I do not recall. I was probably more preoccupied with framing the shot, and getting the look I was going for. I'm sure the scene in the viewfinder was very bright with very low contrast, and there may have been some flare viewable, but the look of the end result I was going for would not have been viewable at f/2.8. Of course,after the shot, there's always the LCD screen on the back of the camera to see if you got what you wanted
