Very frequently. A polariser enhances colours and blue sky in every shot taken in sunny weather. NDs are invaluable in contrasty scenes with a flat horizon, to prevent that nasty overexposed sky, which to much digital trickery and after-shot work (the HDR of the lazy). And I discover anew all the time the creative possibilities of my Cokin Blue-yellow polariser.
