honestly, I don't think that could be overplayed. I'm DYING to get sunburst pictures myself (stupid battery died tonight when I took the camera out to play with the sun). I really love these! what time of day did you do them? I don't know about the color balance layer, haven't tried that. play with it and see what happens. I saw an action last night that would totally work to do it, but it wasn't free and I can't remember where I saw it.

Gwen, I took them about an hour/hour and a half before sun set.
I think I'm gonna try a red bal. layer and see if I like it. It's killing me that it looks like I chopped Matt's foot in the second one.
Yeah, don't think that can be overplayed. These are great...what great shots for you to have of your boys.

I recently figured out my first sunburst as well. Can't overplay it.
Wouldn't worry about the foot chop, I didn't even notice it.
Try a stronger contrast layer in curves.
BTW, thanks girls for the replies!
these look great, you've inspired me to try something like this when I go away this weekend.
These are awesome. I just made dh get up out of his chair so he could see them, and then told him he will help me try to practice sunflares
I love these Kelly! I didn't even notice the foot chop until you pointed it out! Great job!
that looks great
personally I wish the second sun flare was a little less
I really need to figure out the sunflare.
