    Default Musee Du Louvre

    here is an evening photo taken with a strong evening sunlight facing me.
    photo may look underexposed for uncalibrated monitor.
    does it work? if not how to improve?
    appreciate your comments/critiques.

    i'd say u've got it almost right. A bit of golden light on the buildings would be nice. The dynamic range of the scene is just too great for the sensor.

    Without having looked at the histogram, the exposure seems spot on. I think the foreground could be easily opened up on the computer if it comes across as too dark, although I think it is quite reasonable as is.

    Compensating for the camera tilt on the computer would IMHO improve the picture.

    what i did was i metered the sky and the building, both at small aperture (cant rem as i used zenitar 16mm FE) in Av mode. then i switched to manual mode and set to the shutter spd between the 2 readings that i got earlier.

    szekiat, LW. thanks for yr comments.

    Just a feeling that the sky is too contrasting... maybe a bit oversharpen as well?

    i think u tried to burn the sky in a bit too much..

    there seems to be a very obvious feathered burn around the left building.. be careful..

    the compo really helps to prove the expanse of the place and the majesty of the buildings..
