Jo & lens flare

Jo Agfa Vistaplus 200 f11 60th sec

Taken on my Olympus OM-1n with 50mm lens on Agfa Vistaplus 200 ISO film at f11 1/60th sec.

This is what I like most about film. Don’t get me wrong I have and enjoy using my digital camera as well, but look at that lens flare and the way it warms the whole image, that’s no trickery or photoshop, that’s silver crystals reacting to light and burning their way across the image to give it a glow. the positioning of the lens flare is something I am particularly pleased about, the main subject being to the left of the image, the bollards in a row stretching across the rear and then this big hexagonal sun taking up the remaining space nicely. I even like the shape, it makes an interesting extra focal point in the image all i itself.
