I wasd driving to work last night with my sun glasses on and when I looked at the clouds you could see how fluffy and wonderfully their looked I removed my glasses and saw just a blue and white sky. If I wanted to get a photo could I get the cloud effect that I saw thought my sun glasses by putting a filter on the lens. My sun glasses havve a pink tint to them, their don't change everything pink but just enchance the nature colour of things plus block out the suns glear.

Yep! :yes:

What you're after is a polarizing filter. They're actually like two polarized pieces of glass one in front of the other. The front one rotates so that you can control the degree of polarization. I use one all the time on my Nikon. Here's a photo I took on Castaway Cay that shows how they look.

Tom (:macwave:... I'm polarized too!)

What a lovely shot, the clouds were like that last night thought my glasses but not to my eye. is that also taken with a wide angle lens or standard?

Just so mum doesn't feel all alone... :wink:

Remember the holographic glasses they gave out one year at the Osborne Spectacle of Lights? The ones that turned all the lights to angels?

I went 'round the whole of the backlot one night snapping photos through the lens of those glasses.

And I was absolutely sober.

Thanks! The clouds looking like that is the polarizing filter speaking. :thumbsup:

That was taken with my Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX. Set pretty wide according to the EXIF data associated with the picture and, of course, my somewhat limited memory!

Tom (:macwave:... does that help?)
