Naked Lens

Photography enthusiasm stoked by last weekend's workshop with Ron Niebrugge in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park! One of the many things I learnt from Ron is that the only filters he uses are circular polarizers and graduated neutral density filters. I.e. he does NOT use UV/haze filters. I had a haze filter on my lens in the first picture below (complete with raindrop on the left side of the pic). Due to the raindrop, I removed the filter and started shooting without it. I couldn't below the difference in quality and colour with and without the filter! I'm a convert...
