I thought hard about posting this one. The reason why I posted it is because I shot it in raw and did some processing. I will be glad to know if overall I succeeded. Kind regards.

I think this is nice were it not for the perennial 'sun burn out' problem that goes with digital!

the sun's too burnt out. i suggest you retry and do some bracketing that way you'll have more options.

try metering about 5 to 10 degrees above the sun.. then bracket an exposure around that value... usually works pretty well..

here's one way to get aorund the problem. take two photos. one that exposes the sky (as posted above) and then one that exposes for the sun(making the sky darker) then combining them in photoshop.

purists don't like this method but most people won't know, shhhhh... hehe

or you can be really ambitious and take 7-10 shots and merge them in HDR...

Ambulence! Ambulence! Ambulence! A man is nearly going blind! Dale you have a terrific sense of humour. We will get you to the hospital as fast as we can. Got the message loud and clear but it is only my first. Check the second now.

Thanks Berto have not tried that before but will practice together with Dustin's recommendations. Thanks Dustin.

Kind regards.:-)

Jaki.
