Everything flows: Lens flare and shadows

Thiophene_ Guy

Utata's weekend project Panta rhei (everything flows) inspired me to prepare this image taken a few days before the project started. I liked it but couldn't make it work until imagining lens flare as an integral element, like floating will-o-the-wisps.

What flows? the light and light source (sun), evidenced by the flare spots move around the image as the camera wobbles and shadows changing throughout the day as the sun moves.

Technical details:
Topaz Restyle was used to replace the native palette with one from a cross-processed Kodak ektachrome 100 image I admire, thereby enhancing the lens flare.
