I've been doing a lot of late afternoon photography and the weather has been pretty clear so the sunset has been a large influence over the pictures I've been taking. One problem I've been having is that when I want to include the sun in the image, I get a horrible rainbow coloured reflection on my images. The same goes for night photography and trying to shoot street lights etc.
I am using a lens hood and I'm not using any filters on my lens. My camera is a Nikon D5100 and I've been using the kit 18-55 lens and prime 35mm 1.8 lens.
any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
