I'm using a D70 with a DX Nikkor 18-55 lens. I'm taking a lot of outdoor pictures on grey London November days and I just can't seem to capture the sky. I've tried so many different combinations of settings, but the only time I get well exposed foregrounds it's at the expense of losing all of the sky textures.

Does anybody have any idea where I'm going wrong (I'm VERY non technical, so please be gentle) and maybe offer some clues on how I can better set the camera.

I've just joined Nikonians so don't know if this is addressed somewhere else. If so, apologies and please point me in the right direction.

If you want to see the problems I'm having check out some of the recent images at this link - http://www.flickr.com/photos/barry_b/.

Thanks
