    I'm with Doremus. Looks a little like a light leak to me.

    The circular screw-in lens hoods are better at protecting lenses than preventing flare. Rectangular hood and filter systems like the Ambico may work somewhat better if one is available in a large enough size.

    That could have been a possibility too. I was backed into some other mangroves trying to get the photo. I'm looking forward to trying it again to see what happens. Thanks!

    After digging an Ambico and a Lindalh lens hood out of storage, they and the old Sailwind brand appear to be too small for the Nikkor W 300/5.6 lens. Too bad -- the Lindahl system https://www.bhphotovideo.com/FrameWo...05ProAccys.pdf pages 247-253 was comprehensive. The largest filter thread adaptor was 82mm, and the hood would likely vignette on the Nikkor.

    I appreciate you looking into this for me. I took another photo in the same area today. I'll be developing it tomorrow to see how it goes. Thanks!
