Nice post clive, you lost me on all that a bit.

Neil, that last pic is realy easy to produce, if it was me, its cam on a slight angle of cours, then apature at F4.5-F6 then using a poloriser, and then some editing in photo shop to warm the image up and bend the color curves, bringing more yellow out.
The hardest part is seeing the image in your head before shooting it. Then its shooting it how your mind sees it, which can be a real pain in the ass.
I try not to over complicate things, one filter, one lens, maybe my close up filter, and the cam settings, thats it.

Is it better to get a circular polarising filter? What kind of effects do they produce other than boosting contrast and cutting down on reflections?

Circular polarisers are generally recommended for auto focus cameras, as linear filters can affect the AF and metering.

I`m not sure if you are aware, but you can also rotate them through 90 degrees to go from practically zero effect to cutting out reflections on glass and water.

Look for PL CIR when buying, as opposed to just PL which are linear.
