Cabin on the Rocks
It is tough to get proper exposure in a composition that includes a good deal of sky that you don't want blown out and a foreground that demands adequate brightness and clarity.To do this in camera is challenging, if not impossible.
Once on my computer I bumped up the exposure in the grassy area, including the cabin and woodsheds, while bringing a curtain down over the sky area to recover what was lost at capture.
Because the cabin and woodsheds were all relatively the same distance from my lens, I didn't need an exceptionally great depth of field. I opted for an aperture of f/9 which brought satisfactory clarity to the buildings.
