    Coming home through Vermont today, I was wearing my polarized amber shades, and really liking how the landscape looked. Especially the fall colors.

    Has anyone made a filter along the same idea for photography? Any thoughts on why it would/would not be useful?

    Why not a PL and white balance adjustments?

    Thanks! I was searching for "amber polarizer" and it seems I should have been searching for "warming" and "gold"

    I might look at Hoya though, instead of Singh-Ray ;)

    Looks cool!

    I also read (and didn't realize) that a polarizer cools color, so combining a PL with a warming filter helps to counteract.

    I already have the PL I need. Wonder if I should just get an add-on warming filter, but then that'd be 2 pieces of glass in front of the lens.

    As you saw Hoya makes one, so does Tiffen. No experience with either though. Other route to take would be using a Cokin P set-up, no indication that you're interested in that though.

    The hoya warming polarizer (moose peterson branded, is the one I used) doesn't have the oomph the Singh Ray has. Also the hoya has nearly a 3 stop loss, while the ray is about 1 2/3 stop loss. Although the Hoya is pretty good for it's price, it'll set you back about the same as a B+W.

    Make one , unscrew the retaining ring in the polarizer ,drop in an 81a filter on top of the polarizer glass , screw the retaining ring back in.
