This is a pic (i hope i get this part correct putting it in this message) taken back in august, automatic setting before i started to play with the camera functions. For some reason I had the lens hood in the bag and decided to see if it make any difference to the photos. Reading the thread about the lenshood make me think of this photo! The focal length was 14mm at its shortest for the 14-45mm std kit lens I was using. I did retake the photo without the lens hood after I check on screen once the first shot was taken. When the focal length is increased the lenshood no longer obscures the outer edges of the image. Just want to know if I am incoreectly fitting the lenshood? Thanks.
