    He used the one that naturally comes with the sky. Polarization of the sky is quite dramatic relative to the angle to the sun. This is why use of polarizers for wide-angles is uncommon. At higher altitudes, it gets worse.

    Not a graduated filter (I hate those ) Eric has it right; it was just a normal linear polarizer. With the wider field of view from the 90mm, the polarized part of the sky was darkened but not the other.

    Best,

    Domerus, thats what I thought - a polarizer with the sky making it act like a grad with the variation across the sweep of the sky. Nice shot! Also, with wide angle (I shoot alot with SA 90/5.6 XL), I just love the way the sky color darkens naturally, even with a CF.
