    thanks taralyn!

    it kind of depends on the situation, but for this shot I shot in RAW and converted it at the lowest contrast setting. On super bright days it's tough, but shooting low contrast helps tremendously, as does bracketing (or metering both the sky and the foreground and choosing an exposure somewhere in between those readings). glad you liked it!

    Cool tree, great sky. BTW, since you shoot RAW, have you tried opening up a file and adjusting it for exposure for both highlights and shadows in two files then merging the two? That can give you as much or more latitude as film.
