Kill The Arcade

Kill The ArcadeProblem is simply that sky is far too much brighter than your subject, and the camera just cannot handle it correctly.

One way of getting better exposed skies, which works for me:
-Make a fully manual exposure for the sky (to your liking)
-Use an external flash for fill in flash of the subject(s). You might have to adjust flash output manually for the best results.

I used such a technique in my last upload

In my minds eye

In my minds eyeAllthough the idea is good, this lacks subtlety. The picture in the eye seems too bright imho. Also smears of makeup should have been cleaned out. Lashes as well ought to have been straightened before shooting.

Not an easy shot / manipulation, so take my harsh critique lightly Smile
