Looks pretty good Katy. Exposure looks balanced across the frame to me. Grad has worked well. Maybe another grey Scottish day though which makes it difficult. Nice sidelight can really pick out detail in the brickwork in this type of shot, maybe another day. Couple of minor observaions, I would have placed a pedestrian more to the left of the shot and bigger in the frame, and would have tried to place the bollards in the frame and not clipping the edge as I think that catches the eye of the viewer. Give me a shout if you are through this way again., Im in Ed..
Good effort Katy. How about metering the foreground, then the sky and add the appropriate ND to give a balanced exposure. Thats what I try and do and it seems to work(well some of the time!). You have a difficult shot to make work here as it looks like a grey day so its always going to be difficult from the outset. Early morning or early evening is usually when you get the best light. I think Dunbar is North facing so that makes availble light even more scarce! Also on the foreground I would try and select a big rock or similar to give a nice focal point and lead into the shot. Just a few thoughts, sorry for the ramble!
