You'll get the greatest effect from the polariser when shooting at 90 degrees from the Sun - ie with sun on your shoulder, not towards or away from the big yellow.

Questions?

First one is cool, but i would have gotten something more in the foreground.

Flat scene may have benefited from the polarising filter?

That looks more like a maple leaf to me...

That's just me though... :)

16.7 megapix full frame might have to send lens and body in to be calibrated to play together a bit better

getting green edge fringing (on egde of derailer) or just deal with it in post process

Thanks Bigfoot. I took some others like the first one of my kids in the foreground but I think their scale wasn't quite right.

Ah yes, I was looking at an oak tree the other day with it's roundy oblong leaves, and thought, I made a mistake didn't I. Anyway, it was a big leaf!

O.K i was down taking some pics of a mate surfing with a P'N'S ( 8.2pixal) , was kind of gutted as i got some mint shoots but would have been real good with a big camera.Also missed some good shoots.

I have know idea on entry level slr's what could i look at for around $600 ( for camara itself)?

Sorry couldn't be F'ed starting a new tread

If you are wanting an SLR for surf photography be warned that 500 or 600mm prime lenses don't come cheap!!

Yes, I think it was probably a sycamore. (I'd already said I realised it wasn't an oak) :blush: The wikipedia site said it is commonly called the sycamore maple so as not to be confused with other scyamore's.
