Here's a shot that I was really lucky to get. After having left Vegas a bit later than I was hoping to, we got to the Cholla garden only about 10 minutes before I took this shot. I unloaded all my gear and got my Fuji all set up. Then I began metering with my Nikon and I fired off this shot. I was unsure of several things: 1) how bad the lens flare was shooting into the sun, 2) whether or not I got the exposure right, and 3) whether or not f/32 was going to get me enough depth of field. I was hoping to get a second shot, just in case the first one didn't turn out. I wanted the sun to go down just a little further so I'd get less flare; unfortunately, after I cocked the shutter, I realized I forgot to wind the film, so I had to remove the gnd filter and put the lens cap on for that exposure. By the time I got the filter back on, the sun was completely gone and I missed my second shot.
Luckily, this one turned out pretty well, with only a few flare pentagons showing up. Viewed at 100%, you can see that shooting at f/45 instead of f/32 for more depth of field would have helped, but it's still more than acceptable as it is.
