Default Bad Sky

No really, I did something wrong to make the sky look very bad.
Shot with a 7D and Canon 10-22mm lens at 10mm with (I think) a CPL filter. Never had anything like this happen to me before that I can remember anyway.

Craig you can fix the sky somewhat by Selective Coloring and reducing the magenta and black in the Blue and Cyan. But Id say that it was the CPL filter that caused the problem. Its a circular shape in the middle of the sky. Im wondering what the red thing is in the middle of the tree at the bottom.

Did have a feeling it was the CPL, just wasn't sure. Thought the effect of too much CPL would have been a blue cast over the entire picture. Now my question to self is why didn't I see that looking through the viewfinder?

The picture is not really worth saving, looked better in my head at the time, but will play with your suggestions on how to fix this type of problem. Not that I will ever make this mistake again while shooting.

As for the red thing in the picture, I have no idea. Not even sure I saw it at the time I took the picture.

Thanks for the help,
Craig

i have just done a bit of research and found some pictures like yours taken with polarizers. it then goes on to explain the effect but there you are

Wave01,
Great read, very informative. I didn't think about the fact I was using a wide angle lens as they do act a little different.

I've had this happen many times. I'd guess to say any focal length under 35mm is going to run into this problem. I kind of like the effect although this one is a little strong.

Ditto on that commnet. This is very typical when using CPL with a wide angle lens. I do not use a CPL anymore since much of the saturates sky color can now be achieved with post processing. I restrict my use of polarizers to reduce reflections in water or glass.

There wasn't much if any blue in the sky that day and my PP skills for bring blue back into skies is lacking to say the least. I watch the tutorials and it looks easy enough but when I push the same buttons it just doesn't work the same way the tutorial. Back to the PP drawing board.
