Default New 7i first photos

I by far know what I'm doing, but here's some photos. I have turned off the image date stamping. Any tips on camers setting would be helpful. I know I hav e always had the "GRAY" in water pictures. I have tied things in the past and am aware this is due how the camera calculates balance or such. An settings for the 7i would be helpful. These are all right out of the camera so good luck.

Try a polarizer (a thin one). It'll a must for all water shots and'll dial out the reflection as well as bring out the sky/water contrast. You can see the results immediately in the EVF!

This is what you get with a polarizer, right through the bottom !!!

Can you get a shot like this with the 7i? I still dont know if I'm convinced that the Macro will do what I want it to.

Of course this wasn't taken with a 7i. It was taken with an Olympus C-2100UZ.

Default Polarizer vs UV filter? & filtering indoors?

What best add on lens for general outdoor use, polarizer or UV filter? (I own both).

Is filtering helpful when indoor shots are under flourescent lighting?

UV, Haze, 1A or 1B can generally be used to protect the lens. I would not put a polariser on permanently since it'll cut down the available light (and will make TERRIBLE flash shots even with ADI and TTL)

Default polarizer info

Been trying the polarizer. DOn't see the difference in rotation. Also I was wondering about the reduced light. As you ould see I take some action shots and had lots of blurry ones due to what I am thinking was sunset/ moving boat/ and a longer shutter due to less light. I'll need more info on how to handle these settings. I am guessing sports mode will help. Here is a shot of every other in a seq.

The sunset shots were other ones, this was a bright day. The colors were much better. Need to find a easy way to past these shots together.
