Started in the morning after a 3-mile run, to versions of the same sunrise playing with the exposure:

Near the same area got a nice contrast on the color change against the mountains, wish it wasn't such and over-cast day for a better sky

Saw this guy flying around. Funny perspective between the trees and mountain make it look like a toy

Just a comment on the 3rd photo and your complaint about the sky. Have you ever tried an HDR? You'd be surprised what you'd get out of it. Although, the settings you'd need to bring out a good sky will likely make your landscape look too processed, so a blend in photoshop later would likely be necessary.

Yeah I'm working on my Photoshop skills now. The prob with that pic was the sky was crappy anyway, so I could have HDR'd some yucky clouds :lol: I keep a couple of pictures of pure blue sky and nice sky and mixed clouds. One day when I get good maybe I can use those to fix sky problems like that :)

Nice dramatic sunrise.

About your photo with the blown out sky... What editing program do you use?

Right now GIMP for basic stuff (crop/sharp/contrast/brightness) and I'm waiting on a Photoshop CS5 book to get here and start working with it to refine the basics and work more advanced stuff

Cool photos, love to see a bit of manmade stuff mixed in with nature as with the chopper.
