    I’m hoping that I’ve followed the steps correctly since the changes from last year. Please let me know if I didn’t get it uploaded into your flickr group correctly as it doesn’t show there right now. Thanks! :)

    This is the first time I have ever taken a picture with sun flare (on purpose). Thank you for the great tutorial! It took a lot of fiddling to find an exposure that worked, and I definitely need a lot more practice, but it was so fun to learn something new!

    May Challenge #2! I love sunflare, and use it regularly with people as my subject. This beach grass in the setting sun made a special deviation for me. http://www.flickr.com/photos/49221370@N00/7312195928/

    May challenge 4…I wanted to keep my daughter in focus but show some movement in her hair in the dim room. Eh, sorta successful- not my best! http://www.flickr.com/photos/49221370@N00/7312196962/

    #5- My favorite challenge! I have a tendency to too often toss a first shot that doesn’t have a perfect expression. Here, she was pleading with me to let her catch a nearby gosling. The light was perfect, so I set my camera to get a shot and asked her to smile, ignored her pleas. I got this as my first shot, and I actually adore it. This is SOOC.
