To Blue Sky ! !

By Nigel_NZ
This is an example of the trouble I have with my circular polarising filter on the canon 10-22mm lens. Any thoughts on whats going on here, those of you more widely experienced in the art of photography. Thanks Nigel.

Unfortunately this is just the way a polariser works on a super wide lens, the effect is at it's strongest at 90 degrees from the sun and fades off from there. The polariser has got to be handled with caution when using such a wide lens. You may in fact find that a grey grad is a better way to add depth to the sky in some situations.
