    hey guys

    Purists would say use the CPL filter alone.

    But if using 2 filters doesn't cause vignetting and for convenience-sake, use the UV filter behind the CPL filter.

    Should always avoid stacking filters. So pls remove your UV before your CPL

    No. CPL is to eliminate glare from sunlight.

    But CPL also removes reflections from glass right?

    CPL does not reduce glare from sunlight but polarises the light. It removes reflections from glass or water.
