    Hmm...

    i try to take some shots during lunch time, n found the results washed out.

    What can help in a landscape shot?

    Filters like circular pol. or ND filters?

    It might help if you post some sample photos. Off-hand, though, you yourself have identified two possible suspects:

    (a) Atmospheric scatter and specular reflections (glare) -- these tend to introduce unwanted light into your photo. A polarizer will indeed help in such cases by suppressing these undesirable light sources.

    (b) Inadequate exposure settings -- your lens' smallest aperture size, and/or your camera's fastest shutter speed may be inadequate (at the ISO you're using) to accommodate the abundant sunlight in your scenes, hence resulting in overexposure. If this is so, then neutral density filters will indeed help, but actually this is fairly unlikely since most camera-lens combinations should be able to yield proper exposure settings under normal sunny conditions (remember the "sunny f/16" rule).

    Don't run out to buy filters yet... As I've said, if you can post the photos and the exposure settings used, you'll probably be able to get more specific advice.

    Would settings on which metering mode help?
