My main purpose is to filter out the harshness between green forest,meadows and snowcapped peaks.Usually the peaks come out all washed out/overexposed.So to compensate i adjusted the shutter speed to a faster setting.However this gives the darker foreground a darker and hazed look with reduced detail.
I guess i could avoid most of this problem if i took early morning/late evening shots with optimim lighting but sometimes time cant afford that luxury.Especially when in a new location that you are seeing for the first time and cant plan ahead for optimum lighting times.
I am using a nikon d70 with the nikkor 18-70lens and a polarizer.Its a sharp lens.
Even shooting at sunrise/sunset you may have to use a GND or bracket several shots in Photoshop.
