Polarizer example

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by vindex1963, Jun 12, 2011.

  1. Here is an example of a circular polarizer. I use the Marumi DHG Super Circular Polarizer.
    You can see for yourself.
    I'm really happy with this CP.

    Without.
    Aperture priority mode
    f/5.6
    shutter 1/500
    matrix metering
    AF-area mode: single

    that's impressive ! it made a huge difference.
     
  3. I read about them here and decided to buy one.
     
  4. I like how it minimizes the bluish haze of the mountain range in the back.
    It does this better than a busy session in PS:smile:
     
  5. Good results from a good brand. :biggrin:

    I'm going to add the exposure to them also.

    Polarizers work even better for reflective objects. These two photo's were taken one right after the other, only moving the polarizer about a ¼ turn. Notice the windshield, the wheels/tires, and the reflections on the side of the car...

    Can't be an automotive photographer without one, that's for sure.

    I use the regular Marumi (not the Super) - love it.

    Great example!
