hi jean , good idea using the trig point in your composition ,but it would have worked better further over to the left as in the rule of thirds .i guess by the amount of grain esp in the lower half of your shot,you have had trouble lightening the pic.This could have been improved by using an nd graduated filter.In manual you point your meter at part of the sky (not the brightest part)and make a note of it .Then meter the ground ,then work out the diffrence between the two .then you could use a 0.3 1stop,0.6 2stop,or a 0.9 3stop.or a combination if the stops are greater .recompose the shot and adjust accordingly
sounds complicated but its quite easy after you have done it a few times and it really makes a diffrence.
hope this helps a bit

Default To ollie59: Hi Ollie

Thank you for taking the time to give advice.You are right I have had touble lightening the pic. I don't have a filter. I had the trig in the centre because of the cloud formation and the light rays falling around it. Thanks again, Jean
