Default FZ40 Boats at Coffs Harbour

We stayed overnight Saturday at Coffs Harbour, in northern NSW; took some photos of the harbour area yesterday morning. It was a hot day and really sunny, lots of reflections off the water. I used the CPL filter to try to reduce some of that.

Mick, I can't believe how vivid the colors are! Really beautiful! The green of the hillside in the last one with the water in the foreground is exceptional.

What is a CPL filter?

Mick-

Thanks for an excellent series. The CPL really worked well enhancing the colors and reducing glare and reflections.

Nice work.

Duh! I looked it up; silly me, a circularizing polarizer filter. They are fantastic filters!
