    Here are a couple photos I took this weekend on our hike. How is my editing?

    I know part of #2 is 'blown out'...how do you prevent that (besides shooting at a different time). Does it totally ruin the photo?

    I really like the first one. I don't think the second is "ruined" but it does hurt it a little in my opionion.

    To fix it, I will either bracket the shot and use HDR, or just put the different exposures together and paint in the blown out areas from another layer.

    Others may have more ideas for you :)

    I stole this off of the web:
    Most DSLR cameras have the ability to capture these different shots for you. On my D70s, it is a button with two little overlapping squares. My D300 it is in the menus, but I assigned it to a function button.

    I'm not sure if the camera you have has this ability, but you can always manually shoot it.
