Nice pictures. I've used a CPL filter a few times recently with a K5 and a Pentax 50-200 DA and it didn't seem to interfere with the autofocus. I found it useful for darkening a blue sky to control the tones, to make a light colored subject stand out better when it was silhouetted by the sky.

Thank you.  The second shot with the light coloured flower against white/orange BG may be illustrating your point about light coloured subjects backlit (by sky) also.  What about trying to get details from a darker subject (bird etc.) silhouetted by the sky?  Do you find the CPL helps in those situations?
