Re: Polarizer use in photography

I just checked the exposure difference in the EXIF data on these two pictures and it is only 1/3 stop different. I am surprised actually that it was only that much.

Re: Polarizer use in photography

That's true. A polarizer will darken a picture some if you don't compensate with either increased aperture, increased ISO or increased exposure time.

For anyone interested in the use of a polarizer in photography I started another thread for that topic here.

A polarizer is also very usef...

Re: Clear water pools

Does anyone else see the face in the second one? The sunken eyes, big nose and Jay Leno chin?

Yes, I use a polarizer to remove reflections or adjust reflections to a level that I like.

Re: Clear water pools

Thanks everyone. I had perfect weather every day except one and you can see the dark skies in that last picture. Thankfully it was just a quick shower.

Re: A few days of fun in the park

I always take a GPS with me on my trips and have it continuously log my track. This is my track through the Upper Geyser Basin one day. The yellow line with the black dots is my track. Each black dot has a timestamp that I can cross reference with the times of my pictures to help me keep track of wh...
