A Nice Nymphaeaceae (Water Lily)

The above photography is another example of what a Circular Polarizer filter can do for your images. The image of the above Water Lily (Nymphaeaceae) was taken at 11:00 am on a clear sunny day in Waikoloa, Hawaii. The sun's glare coming of the water was very strong and would have created light flairs in the image if I had not been using a Circular Polarizer filter. Besides making the sky in your images an appealing deep blue a Circular Polarizer filter can also reduce are eliminate glare and unwanted reflections in your images. In this case I slowly turned my Circular Polarizer filter until the glare dissipated in my view finder and then I framed the Water Lily for the shot. You should always have a Circular Ploarizer filter in your bag for each of your lens.
