A perfectly polarized direct reflection is exactly half as bright as an unpolarized one (provided the light source itself is not polarized). However, because polarization is inevitably accompanied by absorption, the reflections we see in the scene are more likely to be much dimmer than that.

At other angles, the reflection is more likely to be unpolarized direct reflection. •â•‡ The conclusive test, however, is the appearance of the subject through a polarizing filter. If the polarizer eliminates the reflection, then that reflection is polarized. If, however, the polarizer has no effect on the suspect reflection, then it is ordinary direct reflection.
