UV- Or Skylightfilter?

Sat Feb 24, 2001 6:15 pm

I am just wondering about these filters.
Which of the two should I pick if I want the sky in my photos as blue as possible.

I already have a polarizing filter so you don't have to tell me to buy that.

Neither skylight or UV will make the sky any more "blue".
If you want the sky in your photos as blue as possible,
stick to the polarizer.

Yes, if you want deep blue sky, stick with the polarizer. UV filters are basically a clear piece of glass, which won't help you in this case. Skylight filters will reduce blue casting and make a picture warmer.
