    I underexposed by 0.7EV, bracketted and then picked the -1EV image.
    If you underexpose a bit, the colours will be more saturated and retain some colour in the sky, just as overexposure will wash the colour out. Too much underexposure will reduce shadow detail but the two areas of deep shadow on the river bank are too small to be of consequence. I also used the curves tool (not exposure) for a bit more impact.
    The image, however is really made (IMHO) by the rich warm feel engendered by the late afternoon Autumn Sun. It's a wonderful time of day to take pictures but you have an hour at best to get them.

    You should call him (or her) Scrooge. Somebody isn't in the holiday spirit!

    What are you using to ceiling bounce the pop-up flash?

    Red face You won't believe it ...

    I was kind of stuck and just reaching out for ANYTHING to deflect a direct hit from the pop-up, so I used one of the dog's plastic toys, a rolled-up doggy-newspaper w/ squeaker. I placed it in front of the pop-up flash, about two-inches, on top of the 135mm and angled it a little forward.

    Hey, I'm nothing if not inventive. LOL

    Obviously, he was not amused.

    He thought you were setting light to his toy. No wonder he looks glum.
