    probably an ignorant question, but I'm not sure and asking is the only way to learn. so here's the shot:

    and here's the question:

    what are those bright spots on the gazebo roof and in the lower right quadrant? sun? how to prevent that?

    I could be wrong here and I'm sure one of the more experienced guys will correct me if I am, but...

    Those are sunspots, caused by rays of light entering the lens from the side. A lens bonnet will help with that.

    Yes that is lens flare. the light is literally bouncing around in the lens housing and casting a reflection
