Agreed. I own polarizers but haven't used one in the field for decades. ND filters are inevitably going
to get overdone when someone is marketing them, and get kitchy results. Less is generally more.
Take time to actually see things, study the light, appreciate it, learn how to capture it. I personally
have little patience with those who have to smear honey and jam on everything to make it look like
a postcard on a rack opposite a shelf of ceramic chipmnunks.
