    Interesting video but I found the background music so overwhelming it distracted from the film. Is it necessary to use the music?

    Thank you for this detailed video. I too have a polarizer filter and should use it more. You've inspired me to get out there, use it, and practice to master this technique. Thank you! www.AnaMontgomery.Photography is my URL. Your system like others reject the dotPhotography URLs.

    Very informative and concise, thank you. I have had a polariser for years but don't use it enough
