Sorry, I'm afraid I can't help you on this one. I'm able to see the difference exactly on clouds every time I took the landscape picture with polarizer. It is my main priority in the shot. I'm rotating CPL until I get clouds view which I like.
Just another example

Are you looking at the clouds or the sky as a whole?

Or could you point out specifically where the cloud (cloud not sky) is different?

I can't see a difference in the clouds - I see a difference in the sky, it got darker and made clouds more noticeable. But as far as I can tell the actual clouds stayed the same.

It is know as relativism. Then I'm looking into viewfinder I see clouds. Then you - sky.
I rotate CPL then to have clouds looks different.

I know about the sky.
As well as shrubbery and water surfaces.

So, according to you CPL works on water surfaces.
As we know (at least me, since grade three) clouds are nothing but water reflecting light.
This is why CPL works on clouds. I like to use CPL even if it is almost fully clouded.
Rotating of CPL makes sky fully covered with clouds looks different.

Indeed, clouds are just water.
On that note though, water drops behave differently compared to a liquid ;) which from a technical point of view is just one giant drop.
(Provided you have a smooth surface)

I suppose we have to part with opposing views - maybe I remember to try it and post two shots - one with, one without... maybe you get to do that.

Sure, next time I have enough clouds in my view I'll try to take two pictures to illustrate the difference.
Cheers.

Thanks :)

If I remember I'll do too. (Clouds, UK, shouldn't be too difficult)

you're not going to get great shots in "Creative Auto Mode"... P&S cameras are designed to oversaturate and bump up contrast... shoot in RAW and process them and I gaurentee you the P&S won't touch it... or you could just sell yours and get a P&S... you get out what you put into it...


I know, right? I'm just sayin'...
