Don't get the cheap Hoya ones. Try the more expensive SHMC one, and oh, don't buy it first. Use slides and take a shot with it. Some CPLs have a colour cast to them, and they can change the final output of your photo.

Hmm.. maybe you can let me know the difference between them and the approximate prices? I was looking at those normal HOYA ones initially. Thanks.

They allow you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass etc. They also enable colors to become more saturated and appear clearer, with better contrast. This effect is often used to increase the contrast and saturation in blue skies and white clouds.
