Made a quick video at work today to show how a CPL Filter takes away reflections on a automobile. I have a cheapo Promaster cpl filter that i baught for my kit lens from walmart i think it was from.

Watch in HD!!!

Good example. The thing is that while it will take away some unwanted reflections, it can't put the wanted ones that don't exist into the body. ; )

That's why you need to use a tripod and take multiple exposures. Then just combine then using layer mask :cool:

You missed the point?

...it can't put the wanted ones that don't exist into the body

For instance, filling in the black area of the windshield.
Cleaning up the roof.
Putting a clean highlight in the shoulders. Etc.

well what he meant was take multiple exposures with the cpl in different settings and then merge the exposures together and mask out the parts that are not needed

I understand & said "Good example." I just pointed out that a CPL can help, but it can't do everything for you.

About "it can't put the wanted ones that don't exist into the body?" Maybe these will help to illustrate "wanted reflections":

Well, it wasn't done here, & while "you can still do that", some people still think that a CPL will solve all their problems. Togish1 provided a good example of what you can do with a CPL. I added some input. Take it, or leave it.

I understood! ;) Excellent input from many.

PhotosGuy is saying that the CPL will not create certain reflections that you might wish were there. Even if you combine all the variations as in a multiple exposure as suggested, it won't create certain image variations. It takes light to do so.
