View From the Ferry

I do not know what this is a photo of, 
but I couldn't resist taking it.

The flag, the sunset, the silhouette...
taken from the Staten Island Ferry.
To capture the richness of the sky,
I metered off the sky away from the sun,
then used my meter lock
and recomposed the shot.

If the sun is included in your metering,
it will lighten up the sunset and you'll lose those
luscious colors.
Another option might be to over ride the meter,
and underexpose the photo from what the meter
is telling you.
