I tried something different today.  It's called capturing sunflare.  I need to work on it a bit more because there is too much noise in this photo.  In order to capture the "flare" I had to close my aperture to f/22.  With very little light to expose the picture I had to up my ISO to 800 which caused a bit too much noise for my taste.  The only other choice I had was to lower my shutter speed but without a steady hand I couldn't go much further than I did so maybe a tripod is in order.  I'll work on it so more.  For now, I leave you with my first attempt at capturing sunflare through my dogwood tree:
