get the CPL, you can sort of do the GND in post or you can just take multiple shots and combine then

you cant replicate the CPL's effect.

CPL DEFINITELY!

You can do so much with a CPL. It is one filter which I will never be without!

A CPL can be a ND, but a ND can't be a CPL.

remember you can duplicate ND effects (except slowing water) with post processing tools. I am not aware of any software that will duplicate the effects of a good CPL.

Everyone seems to be voting for the CPL, but I would easily go with the GND. I hardly ever use a CPL but I do use a GDN on almost every landscape shot. Replicating a GND effect in post processing is far from the same thing as actually using one.

do you have a filter holder ? as this is another expense that you will need and holder ring for the Hitech square filter.
