Like I said, there is no way to tell for sure, no matter the skill. The images are small and heavily compressed.

No way to properly tell obviously, but I shoot beaches at -1ev and always have plenty of information of the sky to use. Usually by means of lowering the highlights and increasing the whites a little. If I want it more pronounced like those images, usually just a simple curves adjustment as well as blues mask parenting that layer does the job in a few simple clicks.
