Help! I don’t know what happened or how to remove it!
So I was taking a photo today and saw this sunset and took some pictures of it, but it was too dark so I put on HDR to brighten the photo more. After turning HDR on I saw the horrible huge green circle!
What happened?! Does anyone know how to remove this? Is this just a side effect of using HDR?
Sorry for all the questions, I’ve never had this happen before, I usually just manually adjust. Any advice on how to fix this would be awesome! 🙂

Ok, Thank you for the link, I think I understand… but just to clarify, why is it now green? I know about the lens flare, I purposefully incorporated that for the added effect.
What I don’t understand is why it started orange and then went to a green color? Can someone please help me figure that out and how to fix it please?

OK, I didn’t see any picture with orange… Did it fail to upload?
That’s strange. The HDR software must be doing something funny. What software are you using?January 28, 2019 at 10:35 pm #36641
No, I’m sorry I must have not been clear when I stated, my bad. The already apparent Lens flare is orange/yellowish if you look, then the bigger it gets it turns green colored. I am fine with the orange, I don’t want the green, how do I get rid of the green lens flare? How do I keep it just orange colored?
I use an editing software for Mac called PhotoScape X 🙂January 30, 2019 at 5:18 pm #36697
Lens flare has everything to do with the angle of the light hitting the lens. If you don’t want a great big blob of green, the best way to get rid of it is to shift your camera. It doesn’t take much to change the angle of light. Unfortunately, once the photo is taken, it’ll require a photoshop job to get rid of it. 🙁
Here’s an example of how moving the camera changes the lens flare sizes and shapes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dxa5EOBTu38
