Exposure Troubles

I couldn't get the levels quite right. Even in the original, high-res version the middle clouds look a little blocky, and the trees below the cloud line are too dark.

to do what you want to do (expose everything just right), you'll need a tripod and do something called bracketing. take a shot to get the right exposure for one piece and another for the other while the camera is on the tripod so the shots match exactly. then merge them together in photoshop.

or you can do layers in photoshop and bring out the foreground more.

Actually I got a shot focused on the forest / buildings, but the sky was one color. Maybe if I get some time I'll merge them in photoshop this weekend.
