    Wink Which Pic with Circular PL ( For Newbies )

    Here are some of few Shots for C. PL.
    Don't focus on the fishs or looking the autofocus is it clear.
    The main reason is to tell, which one has less reflected! with or without C.PL
    Of course u can tell which is C.PL because the paper on top.
    Soon or later i will post another few shots without paper.
    So right now, can u see the different?






    30 degree angle. See the right of the Reflected




    Look like all picture got reflected w or w/o C.PL
    Coming up more pictures after few days....

    Polarizers are not effective if you are shooting perpendicularly at the glass. It is most effective at 45 degrees.

    Also, did you turn the polarizer at different angles to find the position that gives the most effect?

    The reflection from the window will be very difficult to remove completely with a polarizer. The best thing to do is to lower the curtains to block the light from outside the window.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    been playing with the camera view, i think if you focus on the non reflective area will not show any of your reflections, but you will have a darker picture.

    also can use flash & bounce the light evenly i think, to minimise your reflection.

    last step, make a light tunnel, damn big 1 to put the fishing tank

    He trying to use AE LOCK ( i not sure is Nikon using the same word)
    Very good! Another good answer!
    - My camera put it at 90 degree. didn't purposely avoid the reflected area.
    - Try not to use flash at all.
    - Yes , if u want to use flash, try his suggested idea. Using bounce.

    i guess 1 lah, cos i trying 2 take a round mirror without my image or surrounding inside.. 90degree angle.. but come out ok. took about more than 100 shots test.

    btw Cir Pl does not take away reflections, thats for sure.
