    I took some pictures out at one of our local lakes early one morning and I just got them back. They would have been fine except for a lot of sun glare/ spots. All I had on my camera at the time was a u/v filter. Is this something a filter can correct or maybe a lense hood? Or maybe it's something I could do differantly? I was using a canon rebelG and 400 film. Thanks! Oh by the way just registered, what an awsome site!

    Always use a lens hood. This will solve most of your lens flare problems, and probably increase the color quality.

    Glare on the subject can be at least partially eliminated with a polarizing filter.

    I assume you're talking about lens flare???

    Lens flare is just caused by the sun reflecting on the glass in your lens. It depends on the angle your lens is to the sun. Using a lens hood will help get rid of most flaring.
