Honestly this assignment is not really about the photos as much… Do don’t worry if these aren’t your best photographs.
The assignment is more about getting you to just use some filters and see what they do, and learning from that. It seems that is exactly what you’ve done.
In your submission you mentioned you wanted “improve landscape pictures and sun & water reflections” That’s exactly what a polarizing filter will do for you. Of course I’m assuming when you say better water reflections you mean removing them. Polarzing filters will kill reflections…
Is that what you mean?
Here is an example:

I hope this assignment was useful.
How are you enjoying the course?
I hope you’re learning quite a bit!
