.....You begin to comment on the lovely rainbow effect horizontal lens flare when watching movies and openly question what lens is being used.

Saw this thread elsewhere, was entertaining, decided to pinch it and bring it here. So, how do you know when your a photographer?

The rainbow lens flare always catches my eye, some kind of Panavision lens? Wink

When you're on holiday and your other half tells you to put the camera away for a bit and just experience the place you're at in "real life".

You're more interested in moving the person you are talking to into a non distracting background zone than actually listening to them.
When everything you look at is a potential shot, be it a bit of string or the sunset.
