That's a lot of flaring I must say. But surprisingly I liked the result. The way the flair is pointing towards the huts is making it act like a leading line. Very unconventional but pleasing result.  :like:

Good result considering the flare hasn't spoilt the overall colour contrast and pointing till huts.

Closer to the song than you may have thought ...

You were caught in the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!

The small circular spots are taking something away from the image, especially the ones against the dark hill background. May be too much trouble to clone them out but it would improve the image.

I liked the pic... I've always had a soft corner for things like lens flare, star bursts etc.

The only issue I have with this image is that purple sort of colour.. Any way of making it the same as the rest of the sun rays?

Thanks Guys ..

@Bharat ... hmm , will perhaps sit one evening out to clone 'em out

@Ayaz ... my son is telling that he is loving the purplish colour of the shaft  but I would have liked full white one. Unfortunately have no clue about how to do it :-(

cheers

Seems a beam of soul to the hut.

Star burst and flare both are working very well in this photo. The flare 'piercing' the huts is very interesting.
