I really like the sky in this picture, the gradients of subtle color from the sunoutward is beautiful.But there is something about the middle, where the city is. Not enough contrast? too light?

Do you mind if i save this to my computer and play with it abit? I'll post my results if you don't mind.

It's a nice capture but I find the sky a bit too bright (most likely you meter on the mountain). I'd have used a wide angle and meter on the water.

I don't think exposure is the problem, here. I am wondering what ISO you used and if you used auto focus or manual. The center portion of the photo seems to be out of focus and has an almost poster quality to it. Spot metering on the city may have helped but I am not sure. Could you please post the EXIF data and tell us your camera settings and mode.

Regarding the D200, I fell in love with that camera the first time I read about it. However, I have recently read two reviews on the D80 and it looks a lot like the D200 at about $600 less! It doesn't really matter right now, I am unemployed and there is no money for new cameras. However, one can still dream.....right?
