The polarizer filter is most effective when the camera is pointed 90 to the sun.

When shooting with the sun behind (or in front of) the camera there is little effect.


Yes, which is why the sky is only darkened along the left side of the picture. But if the sun had been at 90 degrees, would a polarizer have helped with that haze, and made the distant trees and mountain clearer? Or would it not make much of a difference?
