Waiting For A Meal

1/400 sec. f/10 ISO 200


Today's Tip:
A lens hood provides a couple of benefits. It helps prevent flare by blocking side light and also protects the lens should you hit the front against an object.

Krásna volavka popolavá. Mne sa ešte nikdy nepodarila odfotiť tak zblízka.

Beautiful gray heron. Me has never failed a picture so close up.

Gorgeous photo! Your heron pics are beyond comparison. I don't always use my lens hood. Sometimes I want a little flare. But I never thought about the protection it might afford. Hmmmm...

Lovely shot Brian!!! The colors in the water are beautiful and of course the heron is fabulous!!!

I've been using the hood for my new lenses...definitely notice a difference in the side light vignetting that goes without the hood!

Debbie said...

i always wondered what that was for ;)

i really should take a class!!

btw, awesome image!!

A hood took the beating for my zoom lens the other day. And a uv protector was the only thing that was damaged when my camera took a dive off a bunk in a boat. I'm making vows to be more attentive to my camera gear but it's good to have some buffers for the things that go bump.
