Moose, your knowledge of details continues to amaze me. Some artifacts
just please my eye.

Mike, I agree with Tina, and you even got a star in the corner of the

Please consider this musing, not rant. 😁 I have never personally
understood the attraction of such "sunstars". They are pure artifacts
of the optics, that make no sense to me as part of the subject.*
OTOH, I didn't take note of this one in enjoying the photo, until it
was pointed out, so it would appear I am not obsessed. 😉
When I read a review of a lens that points out what nice sunstars it
makes, I wonder where I can find the one that doesn't make them at
There are, of course, many other ways in which I am out of step with
the mainstream. I don't stay awake nights worrying about them.

* And only relatively recent artifacts, at that, as they arose with
SLRs, and esp. when auto aperture mechanisms required less friction,
and thus fewer blades.
