Polarizer gradient?

Is the left to right gradient I see here being caused by the polarizer? The sun was about 45 degrees to the right of the camera and this was taken at 18mm(24mm equivalent). I'm thinking that because the sky on the left was at about 90 degrees from the sun the polarizer had the maximum effect on it and the effect tapered down as the angle to the sun diminished. Does this sound right?

I'm also not happy with the composition. I have ideas on how I'd like to change it, but I'd like to hear other suggestions as well.

Yes, that effect happens a lot with wide angle lenses.

Without seeing more of the scene, it's difficult to make suggestions on how to change the composition, but I think a slightly different angle so that the bare tree to the left was off line from the land mass in the distance might help. Or a lower angle. I really like the reeds in the water and would try to capture them close and in sharp focus with the backround also in sharp focus (hyperfocal effect).

Because the large area of coverage of the wide angle lens exceeds the effective area of coverage of the polarizer. Normally when the lighting is coming from a lower angle and the expanse is across the horizon.

I like the reeds too Carl. I'll give that hyperfocal effect a try the next time I go to that spot.
