Can you guys tell me how the contrast is on this photo? I just got a MacBook Pro 17" and I´m not sure about the contrast and getting used to the monitor. After having a big load of shots rejected for contrast, which 4 months ago would of not been the case, I´m kinda confused. I perrsonaly find the shots way overpunched but if a.net wants it, well i got no other choice.

Quoting Samuel32 (Reply 2): I thought the lens hood would only be usefull in situations where some sun light could shine on the glass
the lens hood protects the lens from light which is coming from the side - if there´s dust on your lens, the light from the side would be reflected by the dust and then the image would look pale. (that´s what i´ve read in a book )
