Nice series Narmer. Love the 2 shots of the jet off set from the moon. Good timing on those 2. You really get into some high altitude areas it looks like. Do you use a polarizer or uv filter?.........cheers.......thekman.

Yes I use the polarizer which always enhances the contrast between sky and clouds, makes the sky bluer (but also some PP for that) and slightly improves the Dynamic range in very bright sunlight scenes.
I set the 62mm polarizer on the FZ20 lens (it fits perfectly, but falls down if not held).
When I don't use the polarizer I always reset the Panas. adaptor with the UV 72mm mounted on it, the effect of which on images is 0 (only for lens protection).

Maybe a ND filter haseffect on sky
