    I caught this with the Canon G1X today. No special effects involved other than the b&w conversion. I had to stand in the middle of the (thankfully quiet) road to get the sun position right :)

    nicely shot. I'd like to see it in color, I think.

    Same here. I rarely get good shots when I play with the sun like this :mad:

    I have a similar shot (below) which I kept in colour but shot from a different position so that the sun was away from the cross. Also taken with the G1X.

    The first b&w image was taken at f/11 and the maximum focal length of 60.4mm. A small aperture generally increases the starburst effect. The image below at f/6.3 and 30mm focal length but the starburst effect is still present at the larger aperture.
