i personally do not use lens hoods. while i understand the benefits ,they are generally too bulky. only one on a beercan

but when i think on it, i wonder why to use these petal shaped

types. look impressive but why the open spaces between petals?

seems like you are limiting the shading benefit

If you do not know why the cutouts are in petal-shaped lenshoods...

... and you haven't even worked it out by thinking about it for a moment....[huh?]

What part of "but when I think on it" leads you to say he hasn't even thought about it for a moment?!
