    Got this lens last week. Debated long and hard whether to get the Canon 10-22mm, but i decided i didnt want to spend the money, and i got this one. It's sharp and reasonably wide.

    So I went downtown on thursday to try this lens out along with my polarizer that I just got recently.

    So here are some shots that I got, nothing fancy. My question is, someone who is not a photographer told me they thought the sky was too dark and dramatic. And I tried explaining the point of the polarizer to them, but I want to know what you guys think. Too much, or does it work? Thanks!

    I think the dark blue is way cool on these shots, especially the ones with the greens in the shot too. I would prefer this over a blandish light blue sky. Nice work.

    Yes, your polariser does a super job and a sky with this bit of "drama" is preferable to any simply "bland" skies at all times. I like it a lot here.
    And I like the effect of your wide angle lens. Cool.
    I still have to get myself used to just normal wide angles - I find composing difficult with them, but in DC I would not, I think, there are so many large buildings that only a wide angle can really do them justice.
