I like those shots of the mount WH :thumbsup:


A neutral density filter. In theory it does not change the colour/tone of the llight going to the lens, but allows for a slower shutter speed, they came in a range of densitys. I love mine but it is only an ND4 I would prefer something darker.

Great panos WH and i also like sunrise 2 and some nice action shots Steve-o, those are way harder than they look.

A new stream shot - I really like shooting in the Waitakeres, so quiet up there.

I have a big problem of orbs in my photos when i shoot in to the sun. Bit like verts photo up the page but much worse and
occurs alot. Anything i can do to fix this? Even had a problem last night shooting at the motorway at night with a nearby streetlight.

lens hoods are the easyest way to cut stray light reflection
( you may have to get a slighty different one to what is standerd for the lens depending on sensor size as most are worked out on 35mm format not 1.6 crop factor)

prime lenses are less susceptable to flare than zoom (less elements)

recompse your shot around it

also buy altering your aperture can alter that amount (use dof button as most cameras use widest aperture when viewing)


but most of the time flare can add to the shot if used right.

also clone and heal in lightroom or photoshop

Also make sure your lens is clean, dirt or grease will make it worse.

I like how about 80% of what you guys say makes no sence to me at all. But I still love photography, pity I'm rather sucky at it :lol:

Fixed lens, so a prime lens isn't an option.
Chance of finding a lens hood for a 46mm (S5700) is pretty low.
Would a circular polarizing filter do anything?

Good idea. Is there a reason some hoods have four sides i.e. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Electronics-ph ... 001745.htm

and others are circular
