Re: Do I need a cpl filter for sky/clouds?

On very wide-angle lenses the effect is different on different parts of the picture. As the polarizer perfectly works 90 degrees to the sun and does not work directly into the sun or 180 degrees from the sun it also works differently on different parts of the picture, which have very different angels to the sun. So on very wide angle lenses the effect could be more visible in the middle of the picture than on the edges or on one edge better than on the other .... but not always and you can work with this differences. A real blue sky has also not exactly the same color on every part of the picture ..... so ... everything is realtive

But the effect on a bright colorful picture especially with blue sky is great!

A good picture is a good picture, with 6 MP, 12 MP, 24 MP 36 MP or 45 MP. And it does not become better with more pixels
