Polarizing Filter (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Polarizing filters are very effective for darkening skies, removing haze and for better photography of subjects underwater through the water. For a very long time it was said one could not duplicate the polarizing effect in software. You can see in the two photographs the difference a polarizer makes (mostly in being able to see the bottom of the lake). The first photograph is with the polarizer, the second without. The subject is a snapping turtle prowling under water. The software I used for this is Macphuns’ Luminar, which is a full editor. Once it includes cataloguing it will be a rival to Lightroom (for Mac only). It has a lot of interesting filters. I’m not getting rid of my polarizer, but if I forget it at home or don’t have the opportunity to put one on, well I can fall back on Luminar.

  2. Mean turtle, great shot. Is there a PC equivalent for Luminar?

    • I cannot say for sure but the most likely would be the On 1 software with their new raw processor. If it’s not there it’s coming.
