Hi i have the Hoya nd1000pro (10 stopper) and the Hoya HD CIR-PL both of these can be had for around 140 UK pounds and have both made a massive difference to my photography. I am lucky enough to live on the coast so it was a no brainer for me.

Anyone had any experience with the Cokin Pure Harmonie circular PL. I understand it is very thin and helps to avoid vineitng (sp).

I have been using CPL in past and am getting good results out of it. Recently I have purchased ND filter ND8 (0.6) to create similar effect. After using this filter, the issue I am facing is the image is looking as if taken with sunglasses on (which is obvious due to ND), whereas in case of CPL the original colours and shades are retained as is.

Also much depends on what you will photograph. If it's jewelry, then better read it Best camera for jewelry photography for beginners

Sounds like your "Neutral" Density filter wasn't truly neutral. You can compensate for this with a custom white balance when using it. Or, if you are shooting in RAW mode, you can do something like using the eyedropper white balance tool on a test shot. For a more permanent fix, you can match a shot taken with the ND filter with another image taken under similar lighting and with compensating exposure but otherwise similar camera settings. The color matching can then be done to the test image taken with the ND filter and the color balance settings saved for use on future exposures taken with the ND filter.
