Hello All,

Got home today and had my Sony circular Polarizer in the mail box.

Just in time for the Memorial Day Weekend. Air Show tommorow at Jones Beach, N.Y.

Well I removed my UV filter, put on my Circular Polarizer ( the lens hood can not be used with the Circular polarizer ), pointed out my window to the building across the street and took two shots. Before shooting I looked at the LCD to see if the effect of the polarizer was visible, the effect is easily visible on the LCD. GREAT!!!

Here are my two shots of a six story apartment window:

Hope you find it interesting. No PP except Auto Levels in PS Elements 4:

Having never used such a filter, I have to ask..:roll: Can you provide the same photo shot without a polarizer? Or is "minimum setting" close enough?

Hi Muddyfox,

Without the Circular Polarizer would be a bit worse than with the CP turned toits lowest effect.

Here are two more samples shot during Saturday's Air Show at Jones Beach, N.Y.:

No pp except Auto Levels in PS Elements 4 and web size ot 500 pixels wide:

Regards,

Nicholas

**** Please Note: 'NO CP' means CP turned to position of lowest effect.
