    Phil, I'm still not sold on the dramatic tone filter. I like what it did to the building and ground on the first of the three you posted, but not the top of the building or shy. I think I like the more typical dramatic tone shots better, but it would be nice if the edges of landscape around the sky weren't as dark. But that is what it is supposed to do, otherwise it would be an HDR filter I guess.

    I know what you mean raven it does give a very false look. Sometimes I like it sometimes I don't. I guess it's the lazy man's pp really. Fun to just see what it does occasionally though.

    I tend to use the key line filter for fun more than any other. The dramatic tone and grainy film can be fun it a scene is a bit too boring in color or contrast, but you want to try and do something with it.

    Dang these are a pain to try and capture in flight. This halloween pendant and male eastern pondhawk kept trading places on this stalk.

    I agree they are pretty fast. I've never got a decent flight shot although others I know have.
    You did really well with these lovely isolation.

    The 50-200+EC-20 is pretty shallow on DOF.

    Phill,
    While I wish I had the EC-14 I use the EC-20 a lot. Spent the afternoon at an area garden that features waterlilies this time of year. They are just far enough out into the ponds that the 50-200 was perfect for groupings like this. For detail work the EC-20 came into use. Used the tripod a lot today. Decided I really do not like the Manfrotto pistol grip head I bought as an experiment. Back to the midsized ball head.

    No really colorful dragonflies today, but at least they liked posing.
