Wow, wonderful photography.

Nice job on the “blue” skies too.

You might try using Canon’s Highlight Tone Priority (D+) for some of those scenes. It underexposes the highlights by up to a stop and then combines them (in-camera) with your normally exposed scene. You do lose the use of ISO 100 though.  Works great on jpegs.

Shooting RAW does give you even more flexibility if you don’t mind the extra work. I’ve been REALLY liking DxO’s Photolab 4 for my RAW conversions lately.  PL4’s “Vibrancy” slider does a really nice job with the blue skies too. Plus it has that jaw-dropping Deep Prime noise reduction as well (only works on RAWs).

See what it can do for you (free trial).  

Thanks for sharing your lovely images.
