I'm also very curious on how you got the blue skies without loosing details in the shadows. Did you use a polarizer? From what I see in the EXIF data on the second picture, you used a 24-120mm Nikor G-type lens at focal length 35mm, f10 and 1/250 shutter speed, ISO 200 and WB sunny. It was edited in Nikon Capture 4.2.0. It looks like no post processing was done in PS. Is this correct?
