Shooting into the light
In reply to WaltP, Feb 11, 2013

I enjoy back-lit photography for landscapes.  A lens hood is necessary to control the amount of flare I get and gives me the ability to shoot at a steeper angle toward the sun.

So your results are different than mine as I have tried both and I have less flexibility with a hood.
