How to achieve this effect

Hi Guys,
i'm quite curious how to achieve this look in photoshop (see attached file).
I guess he or she was holding something like a glass in front of the lens..

Is it possible to do so afterwards in Photoshop?
thx in advance

Could be but is probably some lens flares. I use images of lens flares on top of other images at times, with different blend modes, whatever suits the image best, and mask out the unwanted parts. I have also taken some images just to get the flares, daytime and night time for use in composites.

Just make a new layer over your photo (blending in screen mode), create a few roundish marks with big with it (in this case some creamy colour was used) and change opacity of this layer to 10% or so.

The direct sunlight appears to originate from the rear 11'o clock position.
In-camera this could be achieved by removing the lens hood and placing the sun a few degrees out of frame. Given the shady foliage it's possible that the leaves break-up the sunlight forming a natural 'cookie' gobo, creating the irregular flare - otherwise a suitably grubby lens front element may do the same.

If this was done in post I would've hoped that more care had been exercised.
