Great title for this sweet capture. I use the Tiffen circular polarizer. Probably not the top of the line but I have several of this kind and it works fine. Not real expensive so when you drop over the water falls like I have you don't feel to bad about replacing it. LOL Just brought a 77mm one for a new lens. #1569759
