This photo looks very poorly exposed to me. The sky and buildings are way over exposed maybe as much as 3 stops but no histogram available. This is confirmed by the statue which should be black not a mushy pixelating gray.
Not sure what metering mode was used here but looks to me like it should have been manual spot on the statue and then stopped down about 2. Does the camera do manual spot anyway?
In my mind a bad tourist snap that people take all the time. Not a winner for this Nikon camera and even less for the DP reviewer.
just like you.. you're not a winner also. loser!!!
