This is another alley in Mdina Malta. As you can see from my photos about alleys this old city consists of many narrow alleys. If you have the opportunity to visit Malta don't miss Mdina. Hope to see you all.

Please suggest me how I should have taken this photo, to avoid the burn effect in the sky. OK I admit that the sky was very similar as it is.

a white sky is something you have no real controle over you must expose for the area you are wanting to show,you can stop down a bit and then work in post processing or take it out and replace with a good sky . Dont expose for the sky in this shot or the building will come out very dark and the shadows black, i think.

I'm sorry, I can't resist. I've just got to muddy the waters.

They do say you should expose for the highlights because, apparently, it's easier to recover details from underexposed shadows than it is from over-exposed highlights.

Anyway, I would suggest you put the camera on a tripod and bracket your shots; that is to say, you take one shot at the exposure recommended by the camera, another shot under-exposed and a third over-exposed. The three resulting intermediate images can be combined in post-processing to produce one final image, using the under-exposed image for the highlights and the over-exposed image for the shadows.

If you could shoot in RAW, then you don't need to put the camera on a tripod because you can produce three images, similar to those resulting from bracketing, from one RAW file.

The sky is dull but i really like this shot, the POV and lead-in is excellent and that light really makes this image complete!

Skies are sometimes just like that....we have the same issue here in Maine...sometimes they are so light grey they are colorless. In this case, I really like how the steel grey sky echos the grey street. Nicely done! The bracketting suggestion is a good one, I often take one under exposed and one over exposed by just a stop to see which looks best. Replacing skies is never a good idea in my opinion, the light in the photograph will look unnatural when that is done, and it's almost always quite obvious.
Nice shot, and much less noise in this one. 4 stars!

I think you get away with the white sky here because it is a small area.Another way to go would be to 'Clone' a sky from another image.

Super shot as it is though.
