Well I thought I was being smart when I installed my rain shield on the outside of my Elect. PVC box. I used the bottom of a water bottle thinking that if I made it to long it would be clear and not interfere with the shutter. What it did is actually carry the flash and make it look like I had a flash bleed. I tried everything inside my box to elminate the bleed but it kept coming. Then I thought about it and figure I would put some camo tape on the rain shield, that did it. Now it takes perfect pictures! Just didn't want anybody else to go through this stupor.
