Re: Lens Hood vs Circular Polarizer

This pic was taken with a CPL attached to my Canon 1000d. It helps bump up the blues and puff up the clouds. These effects i find difficult to fet in pp alone with photoshop. At f22 I was only getting 1/30 shutter speed with the cpl attached. You can see some of the wheat ears moving a little in the wind because of this.

I have a lens hood but rarely use it. This thread has got me thinking I should take it out of the box..

As to your choice - buy both.....hide one and take it out when the wife does not expect it. You then say I had this for ages. Isn't that what all guys do?
