Use HDR.

High dynamic range (HDR) photography is great because it helps you capture more detail in high-contrast scenes than you could with one photo. Why settle?

This is an example of an HDR image of a building in downtown Detroit. The sky and clouds were bright and the light was pretty harsh. Not only that, it was oppressively hot. HDR allowed the camera to capture the range of natural contrast in this scene, from the dark granite to the bright reflections.

Photographing buildings, especially from this distance, often requires the widest-angle lens you have.

Settings: f/7.1, 1/80 second, ISO 100, 10mm focal length. APS-C.
