Sunflare

I took this photo a few weeks ago, and I've been saving it for this week! This is an country church, it's kind of out in the boonies. I ran this through the ReDynamix HDR filter on Orton Sepia. I would love to get the star effect on my sunflares, but I don't have a filter, and I don't know how to do it without one! (note to self - LEARN) This was a very homey, lovely little church, but I love that the filter gave it a gothic look. Now, I am the most UN-gothic person ever, but I love creepy, goth images! One of my favorite places to shoot is a cemetery! So if you know of any websites or links with great creepy shots, leave me a comment with a link! CC welcome - thanks for looking!

What a cool effect you achieved.
I don't get the star effect with my sunflares, either.

It's an haunting image. It really stays with me.

LOVE this effect! That is SO surreal looking!

I don't know the technicals exactly on how to get that starburst effect on sunflares, but I do know that it seems (for me) that the only lens I have that I can consistently get it with is my 15mm fisheye, and that is ONLY when I stop the aperture way down to f/16 or f/22.
