If you want to know what CPL is, then read here
I use Kenko CPL filter, with only $12 in price, while the price range is between $11 to $110, my filter is one of the cheapest, so don't expect a good results anyway.
So, here it is the results to show how CPL filters works.

CPL at completely block the lights from monitor, as you can see the light bounce from the keyboard also missing.

Tried the Fotga ND8 filter at Taman Safari Indonesia (check the better images at gallery), trying to get a soft water fall, but what i got is a blueish (color cast) pictures like this.

and this.
Picture
The filter is made by resin plastics, and the price is right, what you pay is what you get.
The blueish picture occured when i take the photos with very strong sunlight directly hit the filter surface, at those photos above was taken at 10am.
but i get a better results when used in the middle of the jungle, without direct sunlight to the filter (check the gallery).
