Use of polarizing filter to reduce glare

Use of polarizing filter to reduce glare
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 the polarizing filter absorbed the polarizer light (glare) reflected from the water. You can clearly see through the water and carp fish swimming in the pond in this photo. Compare this one with the prior 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.
