This photo has been taken in the area of Krkonose, in the village of Janske Lazne in north Czech Republic. One late afternoon I was going sledging with my girlfriend when I saw these fantastic colours in the sky.
Normally I find it difficult to take photographs facing the sun but this one worked out well.
Unfortunetly, that red blob appeared on the left hand side, oh well. ;o)
I have applied some contrast and that's about it.
Please let me know what you think.

It did indeed work out well. The red "blob" doesn't disturb the picture at all. The colours are gorgeous. I wish I could take pictures like that. Wonderful.

This photo makes me dream away...never mind about the red blob. It doesn't hinder me at all. The ambience is so wonderful. Thanks for sharing with us.

The sun looks like a daisy. It is beautiful.
You can remove the red blob by selectively copying nearby parts of the tree and pasting it over the sun flare. In Photoshop Essentials, I also selected the snow with the polygon tool and lightened the snow 9%. Using the magic wand, I selected the tree and lightened it 6%.
I'm out of photos to post but I might post it tomorrow
