Polarizing filters can enhance a blue sky, suppress unwanted glare and improve color saturation in general. In additon reflections on glass, water, shiny surfaces, e.g. on cars or on sunlit leaves, are eliminated. Polarizing filters can also reduce very high contrasts which can be an advantage with digital cameras with a low dynamic range. SLR cameras with split-beam metering or autofocus will normally require a circular polarizing filter.
