Reflected in water



I was down the coast and after church I went for a walk and took a few photos. I've been experimenting with a circular polarising filter. I've been told that Australian skies are blue enough and not to use them in situations such as this but I found that it cuts down on mid morning glare - like sunglasses for your camera!




Happy Easter everyone.

  1. It is a lovely image but I have no idea what a circular polarising filter is! All I have is a simple little camera that fits snugly in my pocket.

    1. If that's the same camera you use to take the photos that are on your blog then you really do amazing things with it!

  2. Nice one! They are very effective for removing glare and unwanted reflections, and best effect with around 50mm focal length and at 90 degree angle to the sun.

  5. This looks like a lovely place to walk. I have never played with filters, but it looks like it did take the glare off. Beautiful.

  6. I use one, but mostly for use on bright sunny days when there's lots of snow around or, as you say, to cut down the glare in scenes where there's lots of water.

    Revrunner, I have heard that they cut glare from snowy scenes. Must remember that for when I get back to a colder climate..someday!

  9. Great results! I'd say the experiment was a success.
