    I'm aware the sky is blown out. What can I do to fix it? I was trying to keep the same exposure settings because i did this like a panorama. What other suggestions do u have? Thanks!!

    don't think u can do too much about it cuz it looks like the tree is exposed fine... can try at a dif time of day mebbe the light will be different?

    or can try to expose for the sky then use a flash on the tree if it reaches it....

    HDR can fix the blown out sky, but you're going to have to invest in an HDR program.

    So could shooting at a different time of day, a CP filter, or a flash, all of which look indefinitely better than a crappy HDR photo.

    I personally don't mind the blown out sky too much. I think the picture is neat in it's own way. The tree is exposed perfectly. It might even look cool in B/W. And I also agree that trying to fix the sky by turning it into an HDR is a waste of time. If you want the sky to not be blown out like that, then I also agree to shoot it at a different time of day. Sunrise or Sunset could be really cool if the colors are interesting....just a thought.

    How do you get panoramic views like that? Is there a lens or a certain angle you need to be at? I love it.

    thanks for the replies guys! I just used photoshop to stitch them together. The auto feature makes it real easy. I didn't have to do much of anything.
