    I like the juxtapoistion of old and new. The image has a lot of haze in it. Maybe boosting the contrast or better yet, if you can go back and take the same shot at sunrise or sunset, it will make a heckuva difference. Nice photo.

    It's difficult to get much polarizing effect when the sun is very high in the sky. However, I'm not sure you've maximized this. There is a line on the rotating portion of the polarizer, and you should point that at the main light source (the sun) for maximum effect.

    As an exercise, try this. With the polarizer mounted, stand in one position and look through the viewfinder. Pan the camera, but always keeping the line of the polarizer pointed at the sun. You will see that the position of the sun relative to the camera also has an impact on the effectiveness of the polarizer. Depending on the conditions, the effect may be subtle. For instance, when the sun is directly overhead, it won't matter which direction you turn, because it doesn't change the cameras angle to the sun. This is also when the weakest maximum polarizer effect is possible.

    the nightime shot of this scene is much nicer. i really like it.

    there is nothing wrong with your lens, you just need to practice a little to get the most out of your gear.

    in the first photo of the boat scene, it looks like you may have taken it in the middle of the day where the sun is at its highest. polarisers work best late in the day or early in the morning and with clouds in the sky to provide contrast. its very difficult for a polariser to give you any effect in the middle of the day without any clouds or contrast in the sky. remember that the CPL needs to be rotated to its correct point to provide the optimum polarising effect.

    in the second photo at night, you have exposed for the lit building in the background and so have underexposed the foreground. next time try and meter off the boats at the front. to do this you will need a tripod and set a longer exposure to get more light into the scene. i would suspect that you need at least a 3-4s shutter speed.

    I went to a local car show today which also had two bands playing. For those who've never heard of the "twist", it's Chubby Checker and his band.

    Hate the wiggles, but if they help you get shots like this
    it is worth enduring. Beautiful!

    Rooz, nice images.

    Saleh, i like your shots, concerning haze i do not know how one would walk around this problem when the day light is exact like this in your pix. this is simply like my eye see it as well. your night shots look great and clean, for green cast that i have no idea but i like it more than reddish cast present in most night shots.
