    you cant tell without saving the pics in XP and using the slideshow to see the difference in the brightening of the clouds

    wow, that polarizer sure makes a difference!! (no i'm NOT being sarcastic)... the cloud hues look a lot nicer, plus that polarizer comes in handy if you take shots of really shiny cars :) i have to pick one up myself... how much did yours run you and what kind is it?

    :doh:

    my bad. its only a sky filter. i got confused. i have to buy a polazier still. it screws onto the sky filter. all the sky filter does is "The 1-A sky filter absorbs almost 1/2 of UV light and is pink-tinted for added warmth and better colors." i still gotta buy a polarizer :o

    A skylight won't make a difference if the camera you're using has TTL white balance unless you preset the white balance without the filter and then put the filter back on for the picture.

    TTL stands for through the lens. For example, on my camera, if white balance is set to Auto, the camera will automatically measure the light coming through the lens and set the white balance accordingly. If you put a skylight filter on it then the camera will automatically compensate for the added red hue. So if you want the effect of the skylight filter, you have to preset the white balance beforehand and then put on the filter and take the picture.
