I was at an indoor pool to watch my daughter race. These two shots is to show just what a polarizing filter can do for effect. In both shots the pool is FULL of swimmers.

#1st - Taken with FZ20 - 2.8, no flash, no filter

I guess you figured it out... you can not use a polarizer indoors.

It works good for not paying the swim coach when the coach wants to be paid for teaching a pool full of students. It's kinda funny to see a shot of the coach standing on deck looking into an 'empty' pool when in fact there's about 20 swimmers.The clubgets his bill fortraining thatday and you give him a picture of him starring at an empty pool. wink, wink, say no more:-)

Neat trick Kevin! I didn't realize that filter would have that effect indoors! Jim

so does the polar filter rely on sunlight to gain the corrct effect (more contrast, saturation and reflection yadda yadda) ???

The only effect you ve got is to shot with longer time, so the swimmers are very blurred.

At last someone who understands what is going on!Polarisers can be used indoors with effect in the appropriate conditions. Any light source can be plane polarised by reflection from suitable surfaces and this can be modified by using a polariser on the camera.

so... if the pool in # 2 is full of swimmers, why are there no wakes, no chop in the water, no arms or legs sticking out , no splashes? sorry... i don't buy it.
