« on: September 20, 2015, 16:50:58 »
Is there a lens flare thread? 

This is the Nikkor 10.5mm @f/16 on D200 IR.  Angels Rest in Oregon.

IR photography and lens flare go hand in hand. Our lenses have coating that are extremely ineffective in IR and that certainly shows ....

Bjorn, do you see a ring pattern in the center of the IR image?  I was curious if that is from one of the elements or something else...

May be internal reflections from the rim of some element(s).

If I was an angel I had a hard tome to decide wether to rest on the Opening Post or in Reply #2.

Both look like inviting places to unfold and hang my hammock at least as the story is told in your superb pictures.

Thank you

Another playful thread, great!
My contribution does perhaps not show so much flare, more a ghost I suppose. Anyway, straight into the sun with an AIS 24mm f/2.8:
