Default Australian countryside

I have only had the digicam a coupla weeks. NEWBIE DISCLAIMER!

Camera has no sky filter so in Paint Shop Pro I set the histogram function to "stretch". This improved contrast (PSP says function "Stretch the contrast so that all possible values are used") could be a way to bring up the sky. ??

What is the right way to substitute the Sky filter function?

Here is a photo (no histogram filter and 60% downsizing), plenty of sky, plenty of fluffy cloud and shadow:

Good pics of wide open skies. A few may need fixes, their horizons are a bit tilted or is the horizon supposed to be like that? I am not a lover of pics of wide open spaces maybe someone else here could comment.

re the horizon line... it is the alpine area (freezing and howling wind in winter) and the crooked fenceposts are pretty old... anyway I tilted -fixed- the pic with the awkward looking horizon.

I should have bracketed every shot to get the best sky result. It was very hazy that day. I suppose I want the sky to look like it did from behind my sunglasses. But the camera sees the natural light...
