Filter Effect Comparison

Playing around with filters on the Canon PowerShot SX40. I was hoping for some nice waterfall pictures, but the weather has been rather dry lately so the flow at Duggars Creek Falls wasn't nearly as impressive as I know it can be after a good spring rain. So I turned around and saw the sunlight filtering through the newly emerged leaves and sparkling on the creek. I figured it was just as well a great opportunity to do some filter testing.

 

Left: No filter

Middle: Neutral density filter for long exposure (13 seconds) and a smooth, silky water effect

Right: Circular polarizing filter to reduce glare and reflections and make the water more "see-through"
