    I know these are NOT great so please be gentle! I am new to all of this and just got my second dslr (a nikon d90) and I am trying to figure everything out!

    If someone can please tell me why I get that green dot thing (I am sure this has a name) in the first picture, I would really appreciate it.

    Just clone it out, make sure your lenses are clean.
    Don't put the sun in the center of the frame, tuck it into a corner.

    Even with the lens flares, they are very picturesque. I like them greatly. And how many Okies do we have on this forum anyway? :)
