Thanks Tim.

I frame some photo's for friends, family etc and whilst I agree that the second is more striking I would bet that if I framed both and offered them to friends, the majority would choose the first.

But then again perhaps I have strange friends

The blue is really nice in the first, but the dof and background in the 2nd just makes it a better picture... the exposure is pretty near perfect, too...

now, your 2 pictures have explained what I said previously. Notice that in the 2nd picture the sensor is more parallel to the first one and notice how in the 2nd picture the background is so blurred. Notice the sharpness in the 2nd picture.

Now, if you would have used a longer focal(I hope you have zoom in your camera), the buds behind the flower would be a little more blurred than what it is now, and then all the attention would go to the flower itself. The bud is distracting and my eyes do not rest on the flower.

Nice picture though. keep it up.

Hold the filter up to the light/reflection/glare and turn it until you get just the effect you want. Then attach it to the camera and reposition it to the same angle.

Another thing to keep in mind when using a polarizer is to pay as much attention to the sky as possible. At certain angles to the sun, the polarizing effect will not be the same across the whole sky in a picture, but will look like a gradient was applied. This is sometimes hard to control.
