Sunrise I - by CLAUDE MONET Large Gallery Framed C&hellip by Monet
4.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfactory, 19 Jun 2014
If you look at reproductions of this classic picture that are available to buy you'll see quite a range often with differing colour saturations.

Hoya 55mm Multi Lens Hood by Hoya

If your camera has a filter thread in front of the lens (and too many brands of bridge-type digitals don't, ridiculous penny-pinching, but that's a grouse for elsewhere) then this hood is an excellent buy. It has three "settings" (points to which you can - easily - push the rubber) to resize it for wide, normal, and zoom, and goes almost flat flat for easy transport or storage. I found it did the job well, shutting out the glare as well as any pricier more "professional-quality" hood and avoiding vignetting at the various zoom setting. A useful accessory to help you get good pictures, and at a very reasonable price.
