did you notice the difference in the sky? Are you happy.. This filter will also help you cut reflections in water, on glass, will make pictures look clear....

Ok, one more trick, to get a sharp pciture, keep the plane of the film/sensor parallel to the subject.

For this picture, the choice of fstop is good as the rose from end to end is sharp, but at this angle and that fstop, the braches are not blurred and the rose does not come out.

Yes, reasonably happy although in truth the skies over here are very rarely that blue.

I'm not sure what you mean about the branches not being blurred as they look fairly blurred to me behind the rose.
I chose the angle deliberately.

no no no, I am not saying anything about YOUR choice of fstop and angle,

All I am saying is 2 things:
1. the subject wil be sharp if the plane of film/sensor is parallel to the subject
2. also, an added advantage, if the subject is parallel to the film/sensor is that you can use a much shallow DOF(lower fstop value) and thus bring out the subject from the surroundings even more(that is background and foreground will be blurred even more)

Your picture is fine. I intended to mention the above as just a technique.

Sorry, misunderstood you.

The main problem I've got to overcome is trying to adjust the filter while using a LCD display. The changes don't show that well so it's a bit hit and miss.

Yeah, it turned out quite well, John. Try playing around with reflections and you'll see a huge difference. Good tips, as well, Punit.

Same one from a different angle.

Luckily it was in a pot so I could move it around the garden
