Looks easy but in Program mode you'd have to set EV compensation right down to about -1 or lower to capture this shot without the highlights.

These shots are a small sensor nightmare where you have to do the best you can with the relatively limited dynamic range. If serious about needing such shots an exposure bracketed set can be post processed into a good result. And obviously on some cameras dynamic range modes could be used.

Simple subject; difficult shot.

You try hard, what are you talking about? Can you see any evidence of any inspiration?, application?

Justification for pointing a camera at something and merely pressing the shutter? Wake up and smell the roses! The camera will do what it is designed to do, no effort or inspiration required.

No subject, and not a difficult shot!, simply point and press, the camera has done it's job, what has the pointer done?

I'm sure in the greater scheme of forum occupation your post might have some worth to certain members. But alas it is wasted on me. In small sensor camera operation my post is an absolute of the physical demands necessary to achieve an effective exposure of the subject; written to the aid of anyone with a small sensor camera who perhaps relies on automation and who in this case would certainly need to adjust exposure compensation to minimise highlight area. To all others of greater skill it is but a throwaway.

Your follow up post does no more than scoff at my efforts to assist and is rediculous in the attempt. Your own photos are very accomplished. Why you should then feel the need to decry the work of others is beyond me; lest you gloat with all the abhorrence that entails.

English is, I estimate, not your first language, since your name suggests so and your image title "burnt by the sun" is both miss spelled and researchable back to the title of a Russian film. But your arrogance translates full well Sir, and your character is greatly diminished by it.
