Maybe this is a well known tip ... using a circular polarizer filter will reduce reflections from the water and sometimes increase color definitions in landscapes. I used a CP indoors to reduce the reflections from a framed picture with a glass front. These results aren't perfect but they're pretty good - especially the chair top.
I use an AGFA CPL for almost 100% of my outdoor photography; it really livens up the colors and increases the blue in the sky. I sometimes pair it with a neutral density gradient-type filter when the sky is so bright that it overwhelms everything else; I do have to be careful to not use too wide an angle when pairing up filters, as I will start to see black corners in my pictures.
I have not yet tried the CPL indoors; I wonder how it would be where a big mirror is on the wall interferring with the picture.

On a poverty-level Kentucky budget, a 24-exposure roll of film would have two Christmases and a summer vacation on it and we might have to wait another six months before being able to afford developing the film.
I still have trouble remembering that it doesn't cost anything to take thousands of pictures; it just almost seems impossible to be true.
