Polarizing Filter

Got a polarizing filter for my camera today. WOW! What a difference it makes taking pictures in the midday sun!

Have you ever noticed how washed out your pictures can look when the sun is high in the sky? It's a really bad time to take great pictures. Anything that reflects the sun ends up to be blown out. And the sky looks white, rather than blue. A polarizing filter is supposed to help with that.

Look at the difference:

. . . . . no filter . . . . .

There is still a glare (possibly because I bought the cheaper of the two filters they had at the camera store - half the price) but still a big difference
