Setting correct aperture for this picture
I took this picture at around 8am. Using F/5.6, 1/100. What do you think of this picture?
At that time, the tree is dark while the sky is rather bright and parts of the pagoda is white, how do I set the correct aperture for this type of picture such that the white part of the pagoda is not overexposed, and the tree is not underexposed?

Was just wondering if a graycard can help in these situations by using the TTL meter to lock the exposure settings on the graycard in the particular lighting, then use the same exposure settings to shoot the required photo?
me newbie... but was thinking of investing in a 18% graycard...
any advice if it is good?

Alternatively, you can try to meter on the pagoda, and then use a fill flash to illuminate the tree, ie if the tree is not to far off of cos, at what focal length did you take your shot?
