    Since I got my Hoya Pro1 CP, I've hardly used it. I did however finally get around to using it last weekend (Sunday afternoon) up at Helton Creek Falls in North GA about 10 minutes from my parent's cabin. It made quite a big difference in cutting glare and reflections on mountain laurel bushes, as well as off the wet rocks around the water. I didn't take any shots without it so sorry, I don't have a comparison.

    Every waterfall picture is a single edited raw file (no PS). For every waterfall picture I post, I actually have a bracket of about 6 images to make some HDR images if I so choose. Some look good, others don't line up with the water moving and all.

    Also, since I'm running 1920 x 1440 these look great on my screen... they may be a bit large on yours, sorry.

    The waterfall pictures are closer to the bottom. The first few are just random mossy stuff... can you tell I like moss? IMO the pictures get better as you go through.

    Very nice pics! I love outdoors photos. Love the greens and browns.

    And I too like moss, but I think pics 2, 3, and 4 could have used a larger depth of field. The amount of moss that is actually in focus is so small that too much of the pics is blurry. IMO anyway.

    Pics look fine on my 1600x1200 as well. The portrait-oriented ones take a bit of scroll but I don't mind, I like big pics heh. I think the internet rule of thumb is about 800px on the longest edge, though.

    Yeah, I was doing those handheld. Mini tripod was too short, big tripod was too tall (didn't feel like reconfiguring the center column... didn't have the tool on me anyway) so I just shot 2.8 ISO 800. I hate it when the flatter part of the object in the foreground is OOF.

    The colors were so nice though I just had to post them. Moss kicks ass.

    pics are too small... dont really fit my screen :p actually they fit great :) 2560 x 1600 ftw!

    bokeh looks funny in some of the pics... but the rest look really good!

    Unless you have a shitty tripod, you don't have to extend it all the way.

    Looks nice.
    Very hard to make cluttered woods like that look interesting.

    As I said, my mini one was too short, big one was too tall without reconfiguring. (taking out the center column).

    Like I've always said, the border is there to set it off from the background of OT regardless of which theme you're using. I find them even more important now since I have switched to using "the darkness" theme.
