Polarizer filters give you several key creative features.
They evenly increase color saturation of all colors (except black and white), creating deep, rich scenics.
They add contrast for dramatic skies and ariel shots.
They eliminate the whitish glare from highly reflected surfaces like glass and water.
Polarizers are two part lenses that rotate, allowing you to select the degree of additional saturation, contrast and glare reduction desired.
Tiffen polarizers are offered in standard and warm versions. Warm polarizers add Tiffen's exclusive 812 warming filter, giving portraits and scenics a warm and muted feel while retaining rich coloration.
Polarizes come in two types:
Circular -- for all types of cameras: required for beam splitting metering systems commonly found in auto-focus SLR's and in most curretn TTL Slr's.
Linear -- for older metering systems.
Tiffen polarizers are available in the follow variations:
Warm Circular -- polarizer plus 812 warming filter.
Wide Angle Circular -- a thin filter designed to avoid vignetting at the edges from larger wide angle lenses.

I like to use this for shooting landscapes since it cuts through the haze in the sky and gives me bluer blues. Really makes the clouds pop.
I do photography of classic cars at car shows in Southern California. Reflections can be a real issue. This polarized filter helps me control that.
I do allot of on the water photography, The filter helps get rid of unwanted reflections from the water and enhances the sky
