Playing with flare - looking to improve

Ever since discovering the unique flare this vintage lens gives me, I've been working to improve my ability to incorporate it in night photos. What do you all like about this and how do you think I could improve? The question applies to both the photograph as a whole and specifically the use of this flare.

I'm using a Canon 5D classic...

2nd Family Photoshoot

Hi all, wondering if there's much wrong with this photo. It took about 25 minutes to finish in Photoshop with 16 different layers.

In my eyes, this is the best photo I have taken family portrait wise. By a very very big margin.

Want Some?

This was an outtake from a group photo shoot to a "Candy is Dandy" theme. I was happy with it, but I'd love others' reactions to it. Are there any glaring issues I should address?


How such frames can be more interesting?

Light house at Puduchery, India. Swivelled steps takes to the top for a good view of city and the sea.


Critical comments invited.

Inviting Critical comments.

A small hike. serene glimpse at the end at height and all efforts paid off. Its located at Northern part of Karnataka, India. a well dotted place in tourist circuit.

Advice for "Event Photography"

My friend works for New Belgium. They recently were having a release party for one of their beers. He asked me to come and do some photos for the event. These 2 photos are 2 of the better ones in my opinion. I have some more that are similar as well. Does anyone have any advice for shooting events like this? And are these photos good enough to...
