    under exposing Can improve the saturation of colours. BUT the shadows will loose details. If the image is well exposed to begin with, you can tweak it f needed. But what the heck... buy the blooming filter and do it properly !!!

    what i wanted to know know the black cut out card thing he used to check out the frame - well what size would the cut out bit be - is it the insert used when framing pics - thinking of getting one before going on hols to Maldives in Jan next year - also - getting a uv filter sounds like a good idea as i have a bridge camera

    What you can get with a gradual filter can be done easily with a photo editor later. On the other hand a UV and a polar filter cannot be replaced digitally -so I would have definitely used them.

    I think the filter in question would be a gradual neutral denisty filter. Not a polarising filter. The gradual ND filter is darker at the top and goes clear at the bottom. Thus reducing the exposure value of the sky. Polarising filters will darken a blue sky and saturate colours, also it will reduce refections in water and glass. Polarising filter also reduce the EV by 2 stops.

    Use of a filter should be considered very carefully, not least since it costs money. It is likely that the one suggested this episode is a polarising one, as this can be rotated to reduce glare and improve colour and contrast. A caveat is that a LINEAR polarising filter can sometimes confuse focussing of SLRs. A CIRCULAR polarising one has the same benefits and shouldn't cause problems focussing, but often costs more. Better advice would be to reduce the Exposure Value ('EV') of the camera. This forces the camera to make the picture darker than it would ordinarily when it takes the photo. This feature is common in digital cameras, as well as SLRs and bridge cameras.
