Hello:

In a lot of my Disney pics last week, I noticed the sky was blown out pretty badly. The rest of the pic seemed pretty well exposed, but the sky was blown out.

I tried a CP filter, and yes, that helped, but it also underexposed the rest of the pic, and you constantly have to remove the lens hood and re-adjust the thing.

I know I have seen many photographs with properly exposed subject AND sky.

Are there tricks, tips to do this?

The D700 seems really susceptible to this in the hands of a novice because it is so sensitive to light.

Thanks,
Rich
