    A few ways:
    - Wait for a better time where the exposure range is not so wide.
    - Take multiple shots with exposure bracketing and compose them into HDR photo.
    - Use graduated ND filter if the horizon is a straight line.
    - Use a camera with high dynamic range.
    - Bring a gigantic flash (ok just kidding).

    I did try using flash... and the result, the human's lighting is un-natural, eg, too bright....
    i am using EX270 flash light of canon. if i direct the flash to the human, the human will be lighted, but too un-natural, but if i direct the flash 90 degree, seems like no effect on the lighting. I am thinking is diffuser useful in this place? where can i get diffuser for 270EX?

    regards,
    eho
    hi there...

    wat u cn do is to play around with the
    1)flash compensation
    2)exposure compensation
    3)flash speed(frm menu)
    4)optimize image colour(normal,softer,potrait,vivid,more vivid)(from menu)
    NIKON D60|18-55mm|18-200mm|Raynox DCR 250|Di622

    Halo , Photography is no spoon feed, read or shoot more.

    See sample here:-
    Aim at background


    Aim at subject


    Use Fill-Flash for bright background


    Happy shooting
