    Please do a search.

    It has been discussed loads of times. A CP-L is meant for cutting off polarised light which may affect pictures in terms of reflections as well as increasing contrast in certain colours.

    The ND is a neutral density filter which cuts off light evenly to reduce the amount of light entering the lens.

    Errr...., if you don't mind I do a little correction: it should be C-PL, not CP-L.
