    the buildings behind Fullerton Hotel are dark ... I guess the meter is fooled by the Fullerton Hotel lighting.

    Try this.

    Use spot metering to measure the hotel and the buildings separately. Use the longer exposure setting. Take the photo and adjust using PS. Copy the hotel to another layer, and adjust the exposure (since it's supposed to be over-exposured alittle). Adjust the buildings' exposure too. And with practice, you can have a good composition. However, note that the hotel should always be brighter alittle to show the depth effect.

    one thing i noticed about the skyline is that if u shoot too late at night or during the weekends, the lights at the offices are usually turned off, which makes everything appears dark except for the fullerton hotel.
