Just got back from holiday and got some really nice deep saturated skies with my polarising filter. Some of the other shots though have a really dark and murky sky (probably my wrong use of the filter and winding the effect on too much).

It occured to me. I use a UV filter on all my lenses. When using the polariser should I remove the UV filter or is it fine to have the polariser stacked on top of the UV filter?

Thanks for any advice.

PS I am using a Canon 350D.

I would not use a polariser with a uv filter.Uv filters do very little(if anything at all) to improve image quality. In fact, the more glass you put in front of your lens the greater the chance of degrading image quality, especially if you are using inexpensive filters. You may also experience vignetting by stacking filters on wider angle lenses.
