Squirel, I would definitely put the original on my wall. Nice exposure. Just a question. Can someone use the polorizer other than when the sun is in the sky? I.E. on a bright day? Regards. Jaki.
Jaki, you can use a polarizer any time - no need for the sun. it will reduce or eliminate reflections from water, glass, leaves, almost any non-metallic surface, whether the sun's out or not. it also tends to deepen contrast and increase saturation. the only disadvantage is that it will usually slow you down about 2 stops, and if it's not apretty bright day, that can cause problems with slow shutter speeds... in a pinch, it can replace a 2-stop neutral density filter for deliberately slowing shutter speeds.
