Lakes and mountains

By MarvKoon
This is the most beautiful landscape I have seen so far. It's taken from Bariloche in Argentina. I hope I have done the landscape justice in my photoSmile

Lovely scene, would be hard not to take a shot here!

There a little haze there that a circular polarizer would have helped minimize by cutting through and providing a deeper contrast in the mountains and sky.

All Ive done in the mod is reduce the haze by reducing highlights, cropping from the left and top, and a slight sharpen.

Oh yes that's much better! thanks! Should i have reduced the exposure setting in the camera to reduce the haze?

No, - it wont matter. The filter will do exactly the same thing as you would see when wearing polarized sunglasses, - they allow you to see through haze, and reflections on water as they block light waves which are polarized in a particular direction. Its a worthwhile filter to buy, buy the only downside is you may need one to fit each different lens you have if they are different diameters at the front.

A fine shot. Just as a matter of information. What you see through polarising sunglasses and a polarising filter won't be the same necessarily. When you fit a filter and you turn it to get maximum effect in the sky the filter is at a different angle to that for sunglasses. They are set at the angle that reduces reflections off shiny surfaces which is a different angle from the one that darkens skies and reduces haze. Also you need to be aware that polarisers work best when the sun is to one side of you. Looking at your shadows it would have been effective. Good polarisers are not cheap and as Banehawi has said you'll need for each lens diameter. Also for wide angles you'll need to be cautious about vignetting. Polarisers can be quite deep and often cause intrusive vignettes.
