    your last sentence was.. good!

    how about strong lightnings instead of the sunlight that cause the foreground to be dark? was thinking of using speedlight not sure if it will help not.
    What we usually do is to take multiple shots, each exposing for a certain part of the frame. And combine the parts we want to keep in PP using layers.

    Another way is to use GND to balance out the exposures (but must shoot in RAW). At least balance the bright and dark areas down to around a 1 to 2 stop difference. This small difference will allow you to recover the details from the image RAW file, so you can bring down the bright areas, and push the dark areas up without much problems.

    I use the 2nd method more... and the following is a result of that work.

    PP is part of digital photography.

    It is similar to dodging and burning exposures in the darkroom in the film days.

    If you are not willing to go into PP, you will never get the quality of pictures like the pros.

    Do you think a speedlight mounted on top of your camera can light up a scene stretching a few hundred metres across?

    needs more space on the left.

    perhaps an earlier timing will help with the exposure.
