Ever since investing in a range of ND Grads, and a Circular Polarising Filters, I have wonder to myself "What is the difference?", and "Do we really need to have both?". This image was captured at Wakehurst Place last year during a spate of particularly nice Autumnal Weather. I shows what of the many deep pools that adorn the beautiful gardens. This one was taken using a Circular Polarising Filter. Could you please advise...

Have a great day, Regards Nathan

Good strong image, the filter appears to have done its job on the water but left the sky a little leak. Getting the ballance is never easy.
Note to oneself, must get filters out more often.
Cheers

Certainly works well on the water, Nathan, but looks a bit unreal with the lighter sky. Cropping the sky may be an option.

I agree with Dave that the sky reflection does look dark compared to the sky, in this situation I would expose correctly for the fore to mid ground and use grads to correct the sky.

We can still enjoy looking at photographs whether they are perfect or not. i would imagine this is near enough to what you had hoped for.

I just know that polarisers cut down reflections and enhance the colours Nathan.
Good shot,but the colours are just a tad too strong for me !!

I think , if you used NG filter as well for the upper part, this would have been even better.

Looks good to me... You can always correct the sky later on. Topaz springs to mind or the nd filters in Lightroom.

The polarising effect depends a lot on your angle to the light source, too.
