Heaven Up Above

The above photograph shows the effects that a good Circular Polarizer filter can produce on sky and clouds. Notice the rich blue of the sky and the nice contrast of the clouds. The way to use a Circular Polarizer filter effectively is to turn the filter slowly until the sky appears as dark as possible through the viewfinder. The darker the sky appears through the viewfinder, the bluer the sky will be in post processing. Circular Polarizer filters can also be useful in reducing reflections on photographic subjects as well.

For a detailed description about The Science of Polarizing Filters visit the Camera Technica web-site.

As a personal note, the clock was one hour behind the actual time that I took this photograph.  I hate to change my clocks also because of daylight savings time.
