A sunny day to use the CPL.

Had another play with the circular polarizer, I don't see any difference through the Viewfinder and have to go by the metering e.g seeing the shutter speed change in Av mode. I have a very old cpl from the eighties and with this you can see it darken the sky and which areas. This new one is an expensive pain in the a***, a Hoya pro 1 digital 82mm MC PL-C.

all on K1 mkII and 28-105 ED DC WR, used step up ring for the CPL, all SOOC shots.

Opening image for me. The polarizer when turned will remove glare and reflected light from subjects as well as deepen the blue in skies but only if you're at the right angle so at times I may not 'do' an awful lot.

Perhaps it was your intention but these look rather under-exposed. I like the composition of number 1 and simply moving the white point improves the view.

Yes you are right, having edited this SOOC shot using RT and white balance picker there is improvement overall and now does'nt look underexposed, thank you.
