The over exposed merlion can be solved with a black cloth/card...
Use the cloth/card to cover the merlion first... and remember where the position is ..
During the exposure, keep moving the cloth/card in and out of the frame at that position. This should expose the merlion about 1/2 the time that the rest of the image is exposed...

On a digital you can check if it is still over exposed... if so, then do the same thing, but keep the cloth/card lingering a little while longer while you move it in to cover the merlion.

Roughly understand wat u trying to sae.
However one qn...if i were to cover the merlion "on and off" to reduce the expose time the black cloth have to enter the view somewhere and tt somewhere will also reduce the place where the cloth "enters"
am i rite to sae this??

A black cloth is a piece of cloth that is black.
Can be a black handkechief or equivielent but must be totally black.No white lining etc...

Yes... it will inevitably darken the area surrounding the merlion too..
That's why u try to keep the merlion close to the side so it is not that apparent.

You guys are thinking too hard :D Just take 2 exposures, one for the general scene and one exposing just for the merlion. Don't change the position of the camera and It will be a snap to combine the 2 exposures. GL
