Circular Polarizing Filters either screw onto the front of your lens or slip into a filter holder such as those made by Cokin or Lee Filters

Deepens blue skies

Rotate the polarizer to deepen blue skies (Image 2, above). The more you rotate, the darker it becomes. At some point in the rotation, the image will start getting brighter again.

But can change other colors As Well

Polarizers will also change the saturation of the color in your shot. Note how the color of the water as changed (Image 1 & 2, above).

Use a tripod and shoot 2 shots

If you use a tripod, you can shoot a good shot for the water, and one that is good for the sky. These can be combined later in image editor (Image 3, above).
