    160sec, that the max of flash sync on manue mode for D100, need to darken the sky.

    6:44pm @ punggol end beach,

    nothing so special about what setting to use, all you need to know is understand the exposure.

    The original image of the sky are not so dramatic, adjust the curve to make it looks this way.


    Just take a reading of the sky, under expose it by 1 ~1 stops, fire a flash, may need to dial - ~1 stop compensation it depends on situation. (flash easily overexpose when the subject is too close and off center.)

    you need to understand "how" metering works, and "where" should you get the reading from.

    I usaully use centre weighted metering, for sunrise or sunset, reading is taken around the sun, but not including the sun, so I zoom in, take a reading or switch to spot metering.

    sorry, needa seek clarification again....
    the metering on my cam easliy gives values of more than 1 sec if i point anywhere near the sky at such dim lighting say at 6pm in any of the metering modes.... are you sure ur cam gives 1/160 s??? or maybe DSLRs can give a shorter shutter speed at low light???

    No that way, what I'm saying if I take a sunrise or sunset, I will take a read around the sun, but not including the sun, that region will give me a mid tone value. and from there you decide how you want to expose the scene, open up or close it down, you decide the final setting.

    Take my picture for example, I deliberate underexpose the sky, cos at that time is only 6.45pm. not the meter reading give me 1/160sec and f13.
