    landscapes are tough to shoot with a gray sky like this... but i like the diffused light for other types of shots. Close-ups, flowers, etc... no harsh shadows to worry about, just nice, naturally diffused light.

    Okay, the tree was bugging the hell out of me because I had really hoped it would turn out better than it did. So, I started farting around with it...making the midtones darker, lowering the contrast, adding a little cyan...
    Is this any better or should I just toss it and try again with fresh film?

    When the sky is like that, I try to include as little of it as is ever possible in my frames for it does not help and only leads to wrong exposures.
    You worked on the second pic nicely, though now it is on the border to looking fake (the green of the grass) ... and the detail in the tree is getting lost.

    Reshoot? Might be an option!
