    Kevin, what mode did you use for this take?
    All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget.

    But if you spot meter, wouldn't that under expose rest of the image?

    Well, I guess the best would be try to avoid the monument. Or take it in the evening when they have not yet to switch on the lights or in the early morning....

    2 solutions I can think of


    1) take the photo when there isn't so much difference in the lighting.... hence you'll have to take it earlier in the evening.

    2) take 2 photos, 2 metered for the monument, the other metered for the whole scene. Later you'll have to join them together in PS. Some people call this technique the digital ND filter.
