I took this photo of my Aunt's house in Normandy (France)with my D40. As you can see it ia rather horrible (the evening light was fading and I over exposed it.

I was PP'ing it and was quite pleased with it. The problem I had was the sky. After some diliberation I decided to just do a colour -> white graduation for the sky.

I am not very happy with the result. When I had a blue graduation the picture when very cold. I tried a warmer sky and tried warming the picture up but it looks wrong and dull. I think I have overcooked the warming up.

Any suggestions on what I should be doing ? How do you make a white sky and interesting sky ?

Thanks

What you have done is really amazing and what I was trying for. I will go back and have another stab at it. I am impressed with a) How you managed to make the scene so bright. I tried and got a very washed out with loss of detail. B) Where you got the clouds from.

I read the thread you supplied. Thanks for that. My next problem is I am not a Adobe user. My weapon of choice is Picture Window Pro 3.5. Do you know of any sites that specialise in clods that I could use ?

Thanks Sterphen

Thanks for that. I will go to the Picture Window Pro forum and ask what the alternatives are.

Thank you for taking the time.
