A polarizing filter is not only useful for darkening skies. I use mine to increase the saturation of leaves in fall color photos, cut glare on the windows of homes and buildings, change the amount of reflected light on bodies of water, lakes and streams, etc. If you want to enhance the blue in the sky you need to have the sun to the side. Google polarizing filters and you will find many illustrations of how to use your thumb and forefinger to identify where maximum polarization can be achieved, but don't limit yourself. Try it everywhere to see where it makes the biggest impact in your photos.

Thanks for the clear information, very interesting! Apparently there are so many options.
