What is this effect called? Where there are lines of light rays emanating from the center ? How do i get that effect? Does it need some kind of special lens or filter to get ? Or does it require post processing to achieve that effect ? enter image description here

  • \$\begingroup\$ @PhilipKendall the sun position is consistent with the shadows and the faces have no direct sun, so I'd say it's genuine. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jul 13, 2021 at 2:43
  • \$\begingroup\$ @MarkRansom oh absolutely, the sun itself isn't added in post, but the flares are just a bit too perfect. I could be wrong, and it doesn't really matter. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ That other linked question was indeed very helpful. Should i delete this question now ? What is the policy/etiquette in this situation ? \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jul 13, 2021 at 7:20

    \$\begingroup\$ Don't worry about deleting the question. As long as it doesn't have any votes I think the "roomba" bot will clean it up. A mod or consensus of power users could delete it too if it looked like it was bad for the site, but I don't think it is. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jul 13, 2021 at 15:16
