Sun on the far mountain top

By BarbroS
At first glance it looked like snow in contrast with the gloomy foreground. As I had to grab the instant I did not have a chance to change from spot metering, which resulted in unnecessary lengthy PP.

I would never leave spot metering set with an auto mode. Spot is the most accurate method if correctly used but you must use exposure lock if setting auto and spot. However, the problem here is not metering, just that the tonal range has beaten your sensor. The exposure on the mountain is about right.

You could try a bit of work in the foreground with the dodging tool, but you really do with a specific subject as a compositional focal point.

Many thanks for your comments and advice which I'll keep in mind and ´try to learn from. BTW , the White balance was the only thing automatic, with aperture priority mode
