Photos thru the water
3 Attachment(s)
First off I want to thank everyone for the warm welcome.

Using the FZ35

Enclosed are some pictures I took through the water using a circular polarizer. I use a 49mm polarizer I used fro my VCam and used a 46mm to 49mm step-up ring on top of a UV filter.

I also put an O-ring on the 46-49 ring so when I turn the camera off it doesn't stop the lens from retracting all the way causing an error. I can catch just enough threads to attach the adapter.

These photo are nothing too special except these eggs occur only once a year I believe and I timed this just right.

I took over 30+ picks with various setting using aut and manual focus and have not learned to collect the settings data for posting yet so I apologize for not showing the settings. It was a sunny day so it took awhile to get the best exposure.

They have been re-sized using a program called Thumbs Plus from 6Mb to 250+ Kb.

If anyone else has any photos through the water, feel free to share here.

Looks like the first shot is a "tad-polarized".
Other than that it's egg sackly right.:crazy1:

Thanks Clint. Took a second, but I got the hang of those kind words.

I have a warped sense of humor.

I take pictures of frogs and tadpoles to wart off evil.

That is a good use for a polarizer.
