    lost the link to those guide. for sky washed out, i guess you need a gradual ND more instead. CPL does help to decrease the brightness of sky entering your lens but it also reduce light from the darker place entering ur lens. you will have to turn the CPL filter to the correct angle to get maximum effect which will help to make pic more saturated and slightly more exposure balanced.
