    I am pretty new to photography but to me it seems like outdoor shots are either made or not by how interesting your sky is. If you have some really dramatic clouds your shot is way better then if you have a all blue sky or a few clouds here and there that aren't that interesting. What is your guys opinion.

    an intersting dramatic sky always adds flare to the overall photo.

    always a +

    A blown sky will often destroy an image. A dramatic sky can add drama if it contributes to the composition. Many outdoor shots do not incorporate the sky at all. It is also possible to paste in a sky in PP, though you need to be pretty slick to make it work.

    agreed.
    dramatic sky can really give an image the edge it needs.
    i find that lately ive been running a grad filter over most of my skies in LR3. seems to really help pop some of them out.
