Sunglasses is my pet name for a polariser filter I use on my camera. I was wondering how many uploads it would take to spot?

Well done on a fabulous environmental portrait and character study - pleasing tones and clarity combined with effective DOF which provides a sense of place without distracting from the subject ...
