circular polarizer plus HDR equals awesome clouds!
Having lots of fun using a Circular Polarizer lens on the end of the Canon G1-X, and HDR photo merging using Dynamic Photo Plus HDR 5 and Corel Photo Paint X5. The Circular Polarizer is two rings: one attaches to the camera, the outer ring can be turned with your hand to rotate it. By rotating it to 90 degrees from the direction of the sun, it somehow cancels out reflections and glare, and enhances the visibility of sky and clouds as well. Add that to HDR multiple image merging, and it's lots of fun!
