Use a Cir-PL filter... should cut out reflections...

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 ;) )
