A Flare for the Dramatic

I really hate the look of digital lens flare that is manufactured in postproduction software packages, particularly when its used on images that were created without a camera, as in the case of the CGI in films like the 2005 The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe. This send-up of the over-use of the effect in the new Star Trek film illustrates how strange the combination of an aesthetic from an obsolete technology with celestial imagery of coronas and other otherworldly lighting could be.
