FZ200 footbridge photo - How could I have shot this photo better?
Oct 4, 2013

I shot this photo a few weeks ago. As you can see, there is an area of very intense sunlight to the left of the footbridge. I realize that I can do some PP to make this photo better; however, I want to know what I could have done at the time of shooting this photo to have reduced the intensity of that area of bright sunlight? Perhaps, I could have done some spot metering? If so, what area would you have metered from. Then again, maybe there wasn't much I could have done about the area of intense sunlight.
