Obviously, if it was taken at night, you wouldn't be able to be see the sun in the middle. :bsmilie:
Sony's nightshot mode can't see so far in the dark either, about 2-3m at most, I think.

Haha, new man, thats not the sun...I used filter>Render>Lighting for that 'flare' to enhance the NVG effect. Those who wore NVG before during army shld know that there's always a brighter spot in the NVG. it's caused by the IR i think.

lol! good trick. but i just remembered that NVG devices create a lot of "grain". so look out for the grain in the pics next time. ;)

And

The paratrooper should glow instead of the sky. They emit more heat than the sky in the dark.
