These are additional examples of using a CPL. I really dislike clear blue skies.

We may not like clear blue skies, but it worked to help you in the first image. Love the images. The first brings up images of a Dan Brown novel.

I really like the lighting in number two....the B&W makes that shot.

Why so serious?

I like these a lot. I live in Houston but still haven't been to this monument.

Wait for a day with some good clouds (during the next month or so) and ride the elevator to the top for the sunset. At least, that's what I'd like to do next visit.
