    Shot using a polariser and straight out of the camera. I have to say that I'm very pleased with this polariser. :smashin:

    So you should be, polariser looks as if it's doing the job.

    polariser has certainly worked well in the shot, nice colours and nice blue sky

    i certainly like using my CPL when it's a sunny day

    Cheers, bubble. I've set this photo as my desktop background and it looks rather good even if I do say so myself. :cool:

    I get the impression that the sun was directly behind you in this shot. Try it when the sun is at 90 degrees to you ... that's when the polariser has the greatest effect. It didn't actually have much of an effect in this shot. (Apart from reducing any direct reflection, and there isn't really any anyway).

    That's right - the sun was behind me. I'll give it a go like you said for greater effect. :thumbsup:

    Looks like you're getting pretty good results from that Fuji.

    When I looked at the first I wasn't sure of this shot, but looking at it on flickr it's growing on me. An interesting shot - nice work Para.

    Thank you very much for commenting, Fozzybear. Like the polariser I'm very pleased with the S6500. :thumbsup:

    I should think you are pleased with it - pixelpeeping you can see it's not quite D-SLR quality but at large normal sizes it's really very good quality indeed, just a little light colour fringing here and there. Another look at that shot and I like it more and more.

    Maybe I'll upgrade to a D-SLR sometime. But for the foreseeable future I'm happy with what I've got as I learn along the way. :)

    Well I don't think you're losing lots with this camera, it seems to be working well for you.
