Default Polarizers:To reveal behind the glass pane.

One of the classic uses of polarizing filters is to reduce reflections. In doing this the scene behind a pane of glass becomes visible as shown below. No editing except for size and the filter was simply rotated from highest effect to lowest effect.

Very cool! The day I took the rainy leaves I also tried out the new polarizer on a window reflection and found something similar. Yours is so simple, yet so incredibly dramatic, it's awesome.

Spedangie, Mtgal, and Ordo,

Thanks for your comments. Yes, I too was surprised at the significant size of the effect.
