Some pics from this past weekend, I chose a few that I think showcases the circular polarizer. Getting that added clarity to the drivers helmet, hands, sometimes face adds a dimension I've always been a fan of. Best example is the F430 at 1/50th with focus on the drivers helmet, would have been a throw away without the CP.

These are all with the 400mm f2.8 with the drop in CP. Thanks for looking.

These look great. I guess I never know when I'll get that stupid rainbow effect on glass when a CPL is used, so I avoid it. The rainbow effect will just destroy a otherwise perfect airplane shot. Nobody wants a canopy with a rainbow. :)

Terrific shots of a fun race. The CPL made for some good looking images. I'll have to experiment with a CPL some more.

Yep, nice shots. I've shot with a CPL once at the St. Pete GP, but it seemed to do some strange things to the images. Definitely helps clean up the glare though.
