Driving home this evening, I happened to have my camera and because of storms south of the city, the clouds were very cool.

BUT, as you can see, the sky is pretty washed out. That is one of my pet-peeves. I ran through in my mind all of the little tweaks I knew of and settled on exposure compensation. I previously had only ever used it indoors, to lighten up a picture to avoid using flash at all costs (I hate flash). So I thought, what the heck. I took the exposure compensation down to -0.7.

Wonder of wonders! New trick learned! No, the sky wasn't that richly deep of a blue but it didn't feel entirely like a lie. :-)
(And yes. I take pictures while driving)
