The sun shot is blow out, EV down more to lessen the blow out.

i'm not sure the first one can be saved... the sun and sky are so badly overexposed there's nothing but a blob of white... in this situation, the only thing you can do is to take your metering on the brightest part of the sky. everything else will be just a silhouette, but then, there's really no detail to speak of in the rocks anyway.

better still, avoid shooting directly at the sun like this... it's rarely that good a composition, and almost always results in dynamic range issues your camera (or post processing) cannot deal with. if you must shoot with a bright background, try it when the sun is just rising or setting. you'll get more color at those times, and the light won't be so bright, and your camera will be better able to deal with it.
