Natural History Museum

By tony64  
A second offering from this outstanding building. The light and shadow combination makes this quite a challenging assignment.
But this is roughly how I saw it, out of camera.
Any tips for exposing for this difficult subject matter?
Expose for the highlights and adjust shadows later?

Haven't been there for a great many years; this end doesn't appear to have changed, at any rate.

I think that's the accepted wisdom! But first thing on a Monday morning I wouldn't guarantee anything!

I've seen some very effective HDR shots of this building but I would probably have gone with your 'expose for highlights' sugestion.

A great image, and with a touch of Burning and Dodging in the Lighter and Darker areas could be a rather striking image. Alternatively try to do as much processing in the Camera as possible. The point made by Woolybill is indeed the ideal solution.
