Hi there,
I've posted a simmilar topic a few days ago "Warming Filters".
I just had one more question about combining a coral filter with a polarizer.
Will the polarizer change the effect the coral filter would have on it's own.
The polarizer will enhance colors on it's own, will it look "weired" slapping a warming filter over a polarizer?
I do understand how each filter works on its own, just not to sure about combining both.
If anyone has any experience or thoughts on that, please let me know.
Thanks a lot,
Rob

The Coral itself isn't affected by the Pola, but Polas themselves can have some slight affect on warmth of highlights outside as you rotate the filter, but that mismatch problem is the same whether or not you used a Coral too.

People use 85/Pola combo filters all the time for tungsten stocks, so using a Coral and Pola should be fine.

Many people consider polarisers to give a slightly cool look to images. The combined use of a warming filter may be beneficial in reducing this 'cool' look and balancing things out.
