i cant seem to get the right rotation to get the dark sky effect. it's difficult to gauge by my LCD screen cos everytime the sky seems to get abit darker, the LCD will autoexpose the scene and make the sky lighter again.

i have no problems wif normal reflections, as they r easier to spot n therefore adjust the angle occasionally.

side qn. wats the best time of the day to get staurated blue skies?

Er.. are there manual controls on your digital cam? Or how about half-press shutter, lock the exposure, then adjust your filter?

Morning is good for blue skies. :)

hello togu, saw u at SEED :)

i thought of that, but if the polariser cuts out more light as i rotate it, dont i need to increase the exposure accordingly as well? or is it unnecessary?
