In recent years I visited Sri Lanka on assignment and would appreciate advice on how I could have improved both these images at the time of taking the photograph.

The first image is of a shy tea plantation workers child and the second is a tea plantation at dawn. Both are as they came off the camera.

Thanks for looking.

#1 I would crop much off the left and top.

#2 is a dramatic shot. I like how the mountain range fades into the distance. I'd like to see this accentuated in some manner. The trees in the foreground have a lot of character. The blown out sky in the middle bothers me. I wonder if you bracketed your shots you might find the underexposed one to be more dramatic. If you shot in raw, you might be able to recover some of the sky. Otherwise, an HDR approach might be appropriate here.

Of course, these are post-processing suggestions and you asked about in-camera things to do differently.

Thanks for your advice Joe. I did not do the cropping as it was required for editorial purposes (place for writing to go). I will try the bracketing thing in future as I do find my 50D to over-exposes - although this mountain image was taken with a 40D.
