Nice shot of a pretty girl. I never thought of using the star filter for protrait shots, but it does a nice job of highlighting her eyes. Thanks for the tip on that Rich

Thanks for the reply.

The star filter is a thread on filter placed on the front of the lens. It has very fine lines etched into it so that they refract any bright lights and create a star pattern. The P880 accepts a 52mm filter threaded onto the lens.

Here's a better example in this night shot

Another nice shot Rich! I like your use of the star filter. Some people use it to the extreme, but you use it to the benifit of the photo.
