Hi all,

Okay, I have a warming polarizer, and can adjust the effect with a rotation Iike all circular polarizers. My question is, what's the best practice in how to determine when I've dialed in the "effect" I want? For example, I can point to the sky and I can see the sky color shift, and use that as a guide...sometimes, I meter on my scene, and rotate the filter and watch the metering change, and use that as a guide.

What's the right way?
