I was shooting using my Panasonic Lumix DMC FX5 the other day when the sun was very bright and there was no clouds.
I encountered an exposure problem when I tried to shoot this one scene. When I metered using the dark tree, the white building and the sky in the background got washed out. When I metered using the white building, the tree and plants in the foreground appeared dark and dull. I was using spot metering and white balance was set at Auto.

Metering using white building / sky
Can I ask in situations like this, where should I meter for a good exposure? I tried using the average metering, but the white building and sky was washed out too.
