This picture was perfect for the effect of a sun flare. This is true because there was a already a sun spot in the upper right corner where I have enhanced the sun spot with the effect. The reason why you should already have a sun spot in the picture is because then the picture as a whole will look more realistic and not look like an effect added in photoshop.
I like this picture with this effect because it enhances the sun spot. Also the simplicity of the picture is perfect to see the sun flare effect in the plain blue sky.
