As a professional lens reviewer I always evaluate a lens' optical performance, including its resistance to flare, ghosting, and veiling when pointed into the sun.  Ironic, then, isn't it, that I have some vintage lenses that do all of those things but I love the effect.  The prismatic flaw in this image is one that I purposefully shot for, and while I have added a bit of contrast to the image and boosted the saturation somewhat, the flare pattern is all natural here.  A delightful defect...

Technical Information: Canon EOS 6D, Zeiss Planar T* 1.7/50mm, Processed in Adobe Lightroom CC, Adobe Photoshop CC,  Alien Skin Exposure 7  (use code "dustinabbott" to get a 10% discount)
