The Daily Snap – September 28
Many photographers do not bother with filters on point-n-shoot camera, but I am a firm believer in filters, especially the polarizing filter which has an effect that can not be replicated exactly in software (especially the polarizer’s effect of removing reflective highlights). Compare the two photos taken below with the Canon G11. The top one was taken with a Singh-Ray LB warming polarizer. Notice the increased colour saturation and especially how reflective glare was eliminated from the path and the yellow leaves in the left foreground. The un-polarized bottom shot is drab by comparison.
