    This is as it was off camera, just converted from raw to jpg.

    D700 24-70 + a high end polarizer.

    I really need to keep my polarizer in my pocket more for when I am outside on bright days.

    Buy a good one though, I had a cheap ($100ish for 77mm) one before and it was trash. Then I bought a $350ish B+W, which I wanted to link but I can't find on BH or adorama anymore and the shit is like WHOA.

    This is true, I bought one at Bestbuy for like 20 bucks and it's worthless. I smashed the damn thing out of anger.

    It's also cool what a polarizer does to windows when shooting buildings.
