    Use a Cir-PL filter... should cut out reflections...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    will under exposing the photo have the same effect as a CPL filter?

    no. I think the reflections will be enhanced instead cos the rest of the picture is under-exposed. Use a polariser, your pic will come out prettier too.

    polarisers not only stop reflections, but also enhances some colours... Like the blue in the sky

    wats ur lense thread size? although brand plays a part, the bigger ur lense thread size the more costly it gets. CL-PL is more expensive than L-PL, but if u using AF camera then u can only use CL-PL. (correct me if wrg )
