Nice, it was alot easier to try than it sounds! Good tut.

I'll have to play around with this until my filter comes in.

hey guys!

this is probably not the place to be posting a pic, but then i used the prescribed polarising technique and i got the following effect in the pic below.

what's right? what's WRONG?

Location: Purana Qila (Old Fort), Delhi, India.

Outstanding tip, I always see such vibrant blues in landscape shots and wonder how the heck they pulled it off. I saw someone later post that they polarized it in PS, and from then on wondered how to do it. My questions are answered, and the process works equally well in The Gimp v2.2 for anyone wondering.

I like the effect, and so simple to do! See http://www.pbase.com/hajeka/image/58858314 as an example.

Polarizing

My first foray into the thick of a discussion.

The PS technique is very useful and thanks for that.

However,

Would you agree that it would be better to use a polarizing filter on the camera at hte point of shooting since at this point the colour and reflections can be minutely adjusted in situ. Is this not a better option than in the digital darkroom.
