I was editing the pictures I took yesterday and I was bummed that I didn't have my polarizer with me. The view I wanted of the lake and the gazebo... the sun wasn't behind it. So the tones I got out of the IR weren't contrasted enough and forcing contrast too much with photoshop on such an even toned-picture just made it look like the white parts were too exposed.

So I came out with some cool pictures composition-wise, but not contrasty enough. *sigh*



See that could have been good if the sun was behind me. I'll have to try in the morning some time.

I did get some good ones though that I liked a little more... I'll upload tons later but for now I just uploaded these two.

Mmm, nice!
I wish today had a few clouds, as I'd go playing outside with my IR filters as well.
So you can use a polarizer with an IR filter? I never thought of using the two together.

Yeah you can use whatever filters you want as far as a haze, polarizer, diffuser, blur, whatever!

If the light can go through that totally opaque thing then the others won't hurt at all! :)
