How often do you use polarizing filters when you shoot?

To polarize, or not to polarize. That is the question. In the photography world, polarization can be thought of as a way to increase saturation, reduce glare, minimize reflections, cut through a hazy day, and help bring higher contrast images to a more manageable dynamic range. While it may not be useful in every scenario and still has downsides, it produces one of the few effects that is pretty much impossible to duplicate with post production. How do you feel about polarizing filters? Do you use them?

I use it majority of the time – don’t leave home without it.
