friiskiwi: A sun flare is not the same as a starburst., they can be but I see quite a few images where there is no star effect. ( 5 years and 1215 days ago )
Heathcliffe: Probably not the place to ask this - but with cameras, is there a way to make the flare 4 'pronged' instead of 6 ? I see nearly everyone has hexagonal flares - is that just the way it works ? ( 5 years and 1212 days ago )
photogirl723: Heathcliffe, it's an in-camera function and you should have a choice of points, depending on the camera. ( 5 years and 1211 days ago )
friiskiwi: Read this, on how to achieve starburst effects or avoid them ( 5 years and 1211 days ago )
