    Can anyone provide me with a good polarized filter to buy? , something ideally not too expensive, but still good quality.

    I have a nikon D3000, 18-55mm nikor lens.

    many thanks

    What is very popular with pro landscape photographers is a warming polarizer. Singh Ray is the best but there are probably less expensive ones.

    This is a good one and won't cause more problems than it solves. It's a 'slim' so it won't vignette at 18 mm on your Nikkor.

    I recently bought a Hoya 72mm circular polarizer for about $45. You can spend beyond three times that, but this thing works just fine, delivers the desired results. As to vignetting, I use a CP almost exclusively for landscapes in autumn, so I shoot wide enough to crop adequately. Not an ideal solution, just a "work around."
