    First picture post for me on here. Could anyone give me any tips on the white sky, Ive searched but new input is always welcome. As far as editing goes I touched it with a bit of PS just to brighten it up a bit.

    This has semi-bad quality, just because its been uploaded to tinypic which is lo-res quality.

    Sites like flickr have hi-res which will give you better quality and sharper looking images. Just a suggestion.

    A Neutral Density (ND) filter will help to get rid of those blown out(white) skies.

    Also, try to make your horizon straight, and not tilted.
  3. Hi Mehta,
    When the sky is brighter than your subject it will get a little burned. You can modify it a little with a filter, but it's more a matter of the angle you choose in relation to where the sun is in the sky. This was with a polarizer, with the light coming from behind me.

    Extreme example, you don't have to go this blue :biggrin:

    Hope this helps, Fred
  4. ND would have been hard to use here because of all the tree tops--ND works best/easiest with a straight horizon. Perhaps a polarizer would have helped--especially if you are at right angles to the sun. You can also correct as part of your in-computer processing. Capture NX2 for example,allows you to selectively darken and even change the color of sections of a scene.

    alright cool thanks for all the input, ill definitely keep in mind keeping the horizon level, and the angle I am to the sun.
