Light pollution filter suggestions?

Hi all.

Due to living rougly 20-25km Km's from Sydney CBD, I deal with terrible light pollution in almost every direction. It really shows in my images and I was looking at getting myself some type of light pollution filter.

I shoot with an un-modded cannon EOS 60D and was wondering what are some good filters to use to negate the light pollution in my area.

I was looking at these:

If I was the chose one of the 3, which would be the best for me, colour correction and blocking of LP wise?

The best light filter? Car and petrol.

A bit further west of Sydney is "Jellybean pools":


it's been many years since I've been there, but the skies were amazing from there. 2nd best skies i've ever seen in my entire life.

Yep, the second one, CLS.
It will throw a bit of a blue\green cast on your images but that can be balanced out at processing.
