Polarizer on Tamron 18-250mm

Hi Folks
I took these a while back when I first purchased my 18-250 Tamy.
The first one was shot with no filter.
The second one with a b&w circular polarizer.



I wonder; is a polarizer is a polarizer?

WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO THE SKY IN THE SECOND SHOT???????
Did you have a specific purpose in mind when buying the polarizer? Do you know how/when to use it?

First shot looks ok, I wouldn't think to use a polarizer for that shot. Something is wrong somewhere....

Woah, shizen... I've never had my circular polariser turn in a result like that - skies are still blue for me. (Hoya 77mm, not the pro series or HMC)

The purple sky blew me away also. Looks so fake. Well as it turned out back then, The polorizer that they gave me was for a film camera. I would not have thought it would have made a difference. This is why I asked the question. Is a polorizer a polorizer?; in the OP Since that time, with the right polorizer, I get some really pretty shots.
I will take some new pics and post them.

What post processing/software? A polarizer IS a polarizer; with the only obvious difference being linear or circular. B+W is Biermann and Weber through Schneider Optics, NOT black & white! Film or digital is also BS.
