Photography buffs know that polarizers can make their ordinary shots look magical, providing color and contrast enhancement to an image. One of the issues I often face is a cloudy sky where the light is diffused and yet its glaring behind me or around those clouds, making it impossible to get a well balanced shot.
Reflected light often shows up as whitish glare that washes out color in an image. A polarizer corrects this problem producing deep, dramatically blue skies. It also removes glare from non-metallic surfaces, such as windows and water. Color saturation in general, especially outdoors, can be improved significantly.
I’ve been wanting to test out the Tiffen polarizer for some time and recently, they sent me one to test out on the road. Note that the below polarizer is sized to fit my wide angle lens on my Camera 7D.
