i know i know, but it took me awhile to get this type of exposure from the first try… 🙂
don’t fret on this. soon people will be afraid to open their camera because of thinking its a clichee photo. where did u take your metering from?
actually is pretty simple, you need an aperture of max 12 and you take your reading closer to the sun, but not too close, for example here on the first 3rd if you’d divide the distance between horizon and sun into 3rds
