    Mainly Neutral Density filter only reduces the overall exposure. Whereas a CPL actually polarises, meaning only allow light in certain planes to pass through. I prefer a CPL because rotating before taking a picture produces interesting effects.

    Without the filter, there won't be the blue gradient in the sky. In fact, the sky would likely be blown out white/grey.
