Sunset at the Louvre

Sunset at the Louvre
I guess everybody takes this shot when they have the opportunity, yet it is difficult to get the exposure right. I use the “Sky Brothers” method as described by Bryan Peterson in his book Understanding Exposure; in other words, for a backlit photo like this, I use spot metering and I meter off the sky a little away from the sun. Works like a charm 🙂
