Default Little more spendy CPL

Here's some shots using a B+W CPL on the 12-40. It was a fairly sunny day but mostly undercover at the Japanese Garden in Portland. I've never had a CPL and am pretty happy with how it reduces reflections on water.

Though I feel the urge to make a "Solid Gold and Platinum CPL" thread.

Beautiful! Love it.

I really like the two Tiffen Digital HT CPL's I recently picked up, 58mm and 62mm for the 12-40, 75-300 Zuikos and Panasonic 35-100 and 12-35mm f2.8's. Nothing cheap about them, but when you happen on a subject where they work, they really work well.

Thanks guys. I find the quality of my photography has a fighting chance when there is a new toy to play with (as in the CPL) or inspiring subject matter. Send me to a wedding and my photography goes to heck. Might as well buy a point and shoot.

No disrespect to all the great wedding photogs who enjoy and do such a wonderful job out there. I'll be looking to hire you next time there is a wedding in my family. :-)

These are very nice and remind me of the time I visited Portland. The cpl and the nd filter are the only two I think are truly needed in a digital world because they can't be done in post with software

Looks like the B&W CPL worked very well for you. Very nice shots with great color.
