I like 1 & 4 best.....and they are at practically the opposite ends of lighting.

A cool way to get aerial shots but I think i'll have to pass on that method.(squawwkkk):-)

And finally, bringing out the best in my polarising filter.

Cheers,

Ollie, I gotta say, for some reason, I really liked this one the best. It just caught my eye the most. The rest are phenomenal too! Great job!

Excellent series, Ollie.The first is my fav followed by the 4th. BTW, what polarizer filter do you have? I bought a Hoya Moose warm pol, which I used extensively on my trip to Point Rey this past weekend and for some reason, some shots came out a lot richer than others. When you shoot landscape w/ your pol, do you adjust the filter at all? I can only notice differencesturning the filter whenthe subject has a lot of reflection, otherwise it does not seem to make a difference. However,the results do not reflect that.

Thanks Tullio. I have a Hoya circular polariser. I am always playing with the angle of the filter to get the best results depending on the situation. Clouds require maximum polarisation for best definition, with best results when you are pointing away from the sun (or at least at 90 degrees to the sun) like my last pic. If you want to get rid of water or window reflections, you also need maximum polarisation. But for sunsets you often want the nice sun refelctions on the water, so there is a trade off between well defined clouds (polarised) and nice reflections (not polarised).

Cheers,
Ollie :|
