didn't know histogram can see from left to right one.....thought it only can see what intensity of light is in the picture.....darker areas on the left while lighter areas is on the right and the amplitude indicates how much intensity....i may be wrong...

Nope... Exposure is just right.
The left side of your pic looks darker because it's the shadow of the trees, & that part is 3 EV less than the sky. if U overexpose the same pic by 3EV, that part will be properly exposed, but your sky will be total white.

This should be easily done using the Shadows/Highlights function in Photoshop CS.

its up to the creator of the picture...
if the whole picture is filled with sillouttes with just a few bright parts, and i meant it to be that way, its PERFECTLY exposed... the histogram means nothing to me.
as long as you like the picture.

Histrogram only shows the distribution of light/dark portions of the image and whether highlights/shadows are clipped. It cannot tell you if the exposure is 'correct'.

This one 2 prob, too harsh the shadow when I took the pix, no time to wait. secondly, the lab gave me a lightleak -> http://atree.no-ip.com/gallery/album02/spring005

it's leaning to the under side.....
open up LEVELS and pull the center fader to the (darker side) peak to see the difference Click OK and then open up LEVELS again to see the new histogram for finetune
