    It's the WB processing that's affecting the images, not the polarizer. Polarizer sometimes tends to confuse the sensor into giving a blue hue, of course which can easily be corrected with photoshop or any RAW s/w.

    Yup calibrated oredi, dats why can see the purple clouds for the 1st set of photos. 2nd set with the corrected wb, part of the clouds are grey in color, others white. So is it considered that my calbration is accurate enough ?

    Was refering to the area highlighted. The 1st set looks purplish. 2nd set is grey. Wat are u seeing that im not. Hehe, hope to finish calibrating my monitor.


    Or how would u suggest calibrating a monitor w/o using $pyder and such.
    I have loaded a ICC profile ( adobe rgb1998) onto nvidia Gfx card.
    Adjusted my monitor to display at 6300k or rgb for image management.
    Adjusted my contrast and brightness to be able to see the spectrum of 216 colors. Shades of black and white as well.
    What else am i missing?
