I’ve shot inside the Eaton Centre on a regular basis, and it can be hard to find new angles/looks. When I was there last Saturday to shoot the new walkway again the angled morning light gave the interior of the mall an interesting look.
My 50mm/f4 Zeiss Distagon lens is one of my favourites, and it continues to surprise me. I wasn’t quite pointing at the sun in the image from the Scarborough Bluff’s on New Year’s Day, but it was certainly in the sun’s direction. Flare is not an issue at all. (Of course having a lens hood on the lens helps).
