Sandy if you like the reflections on the water then these are fine. But if you turn that polorizing filter a little at a time you should lose almost all of the reflected light and not be able to see the plants and other things above the water reflected in the Photo!Examples to follow!

This one has almost no reflected light and the bottom or under the water can be seen Clearly.

Here almost the same exact shot but after turning the polorizer to get the most reflections that I can get! In other words the first one is the polorizer doing it's job and cutting out the reflected light from the photo! The second would be almost the same as if there were no polorizing filter on the camera at all! The polorizer can let the reflections show or do away with them and let you see whats going on under all that reflected light. Or it can give some reflections and let some of the underwater sights be seen together! How much or how little depends on how far you turn the lens!

I'd hazard a guess and say that the polorizer was turned about to a halfway point on those shots and you got some reflections and some clarity on the fish! Beautiful shots to me!!
