Why I hate TIffen Polarizers

I am not a fan of Tiffen filters. When I shoot with the damned things they turn the sky into something that looks like I'm looking through a set of my RayBan aviator sunglasses. It's not a result that I particularly appreciate when I spent hard-earned cash on it.

This shot was done without the circular polarizer

Notice the shot has perfectly blue sky?

This was the shot with the circular polarizer from Tiffen

The sky looks freakin' grey-green!

This shot is the one closer in where the sky is even more pronounced with the circular polarizer

The sky looks disgustingly green

without the polarizer

Pathetic that the sky looks better without the polarizer on.

From now on, I'm not going to try and save a few bucks. I'm going to stick with Hoya
