First outing for a new 18-55IS lens and polarising filter. Obliging bovines were much appreciated to add a little interest.

Lovely pastoral scene to add to your superb collection of mountain landscapes, Pete. You've got me thinking that I should be studying filters and lenses to enhance my very primitive point and shoot "technique". Thanks for the pleasure of seeing your images. John

Thats a nice scene Pete,the polariser does make a big difference, i bought one a few months ago after taking advice from a friend on Pano.

Good luck with the new lens;-))...Neil.

Thanks John and Neil. I've had the circular polariser for a while and used it a few times, but the image stabiliser lens was new to replace the old 18-55 non IS lens that came with our 300D and had started playing up. The polariser is good to bring out blue skies and sharpen up water reflections. It does reduce the light levels onto the sensor, so I thought it would work well with the image stabiliser lens that allows you to hand hold longer exposure times. I don't usually use a tripod as we are out for a walk rather than out to take the best possible photo!
