This has some good basics, in addition to needing some adjustments, or a different approach to shooting. Without exif its hard to day.

Generally though, in a scene like this, shooting towards the bright sky, and in an auto mode with auto white balance, this would be the typical result.

So best to use Aperture mode, add +1 exposure compensation (as the camera will underexpose due to the sky) and use a daylight or fine weather white balance.

The result would be closer to the mod

You cropped it nicely from the original, though the original seems to be a bit nice in terms if being less harsh/contrasty. Its also less of a blue colour cast. I will try a mod of the original

Yeah, I think I'm just being a bit heavy handed when fiddling with adjustments.

It looks like a lighter touch would be better.

Interestingly, the original has all the exif data; this means the programme you use for tweaking is removing exif by "saving for Web", so if you can disable that you will have the data in your tweaked images.

Exif says, f/11, 1/320th sec, ISO 100, Auto WB and Auto or P mode, all quite decent settings. 6/22/2017 at 6:40AM

I did a mod, basically a warmer white balance, crop and straighten, brighter in the lower half (non sky), and a slight application of sharpening. Contrast was reduced rather than increased. It looks a lot like the original, quite good!

Yeah, that's the very original straight from the SD card. That's probably why all the daya is there.

Thanks 🙂

I have this weird habit of more colour is better.. don't know why.
