I would miss many of my shots of something similar to your first shot if I was deciding to to put the lens hood on or not, my lens hoods are on permanently, whilst not adding anything to a shot where they are not needed by the same mark they are not having any detrimental effect, then should I turn around and the shot of a lifetime appears I have my camera ready for the type of image where the lens hood is essential.

Did you note the direction of the sun/shadows in the shot you referenced?

Did what I said contradict what you find necessary for your practices?
