    Comments about Hoya 52mm Enhancing (Intensifier) Glass Filter:

    I recently purchased the Hoya enhancing filter for taking Fall pictures, mostly of the changing foliage. Just as the name implies it increases the saturation of red and orange. I am considering using it with a polarizing filter.

      Comments about Hoya 52mm Enhancing (Intensifier) Glass Filter:

      I use this filter to remove the bright yellow sodium flare from the image of a flame when photographing glass workers. The yellow is substantially reduced and the other colors are bright and pretty close to natural. It is exactly what I needed for the job.
