Photo without a polarizing filter

Photo without a polarizing filter
At the Hong Kong Park, I took two photos showing what a circular polarising fiter can do.

A circular polarizer* filter can reduce the glare (or polarised light) reflected from non-metallic surfaces. This photo shows how without the polarizing filter, the polarized light (glare) reflected from the water makes it almost impossible to see through the water. Compare this one with the next photo to see the difference.


* I use polarizer, polariser, polarizing and polarising interchangeably here on purpose, so that users of both American and British English searching for the term will find these photos.
