I just discovered Klee & Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge where they actually encourage you to mess with your photos! This week the challenge is ‘into the light’, shooting into sun.
Shot directly into the Spanish sun, the small image is the original and after that I let Pixlromatic do its thing!
The sun flare creates a silhouette of this cathedral in Madrid, Spain.
This statue of a horse and rider is also in Madrid, shot three weeks later.
The Playa de Catedrales in Galicia, Spain.
Incense burner in the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela, the end of the road for the many pilgrims on El Camino de Santiago.
Entry into one of the turrets of Segovia’s Castle.
Late afternoon in Valladolid.
I also tried the photo app Stackables, but found that only the ‘Mystic Forest’ formula managed to keep the sun flare without turning the image into a sunset, and even then I preferred the over-the-top looks from Pixlromatic.
