—scoring this. (Who the inquisitive passer-by is I have no idea … they just seem to pop out of nowhere whenever I point a camera) (you get over it—learn to adapt and just go with the flow). Moving on—
—this old building is superfluous to requirements so it’s being demolished to make room for a new hotel. The shot above is effectively un-polarised—
—while the one below
—is achieved with a ninety degree twist of the filter—you get proportional effect for different amounts of twist.
One of these babies is well worth the investment.
