Default How did I do this time?

So I just got out of the firehouse and I beat feet up to Bow, NH to get some sunrise shots of the Wabash.

Tried the CPL filter and this is the one I like the best. Adjusted the softness and cropped it down a bit. Also gave it a little CW rotation.

Could it be a little under exposed?

Thanks

Not enough light on the nose, by a long shot. Too bad.

For you, maybe but they won't see it that way. Now if you were standing in the middle of a 20 X 30 foot mirror it might have worked out to their liking!

That cutoff line pole is probably not going to work for RP either, it has to be all in or all out.

Not really any reason to use a CPL filter on a shot like that. I get the feeling you don't understand 100% what its uses are (best time of day, subject, direction).

Here's a good site with some info on them: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tu...larizers.shtml

Depends upon which way you are looking in relation to the sun.
