    To be honest I didnt realize the sky was a deeper blue until I got the three side by side. #3 was directly away from sun where the other two are with the sun to the right. I think I probably tweeked it more manually than the others.

    The Konza Praire is the land that runs near manhatan along highway 177. All that land in the flint hills is beautiful though, love living there! A lot of the land is owned by private parties though so there is only public access at the Konza wildlife area were there are hiking trails.

    Perhaps a bit of lens flair in the first two causing the softness?

    I was using my 18-55mm lens in which I didnt have a polarized filter on. It could very well be as the first two were taken facing south and south east at 5pm and the sun was to my right.

    What kind of image compression are you using, VTF? There seems to be a lot of degradation in quality in the first two images. Otherwise, they're very nice.
