If you notice at the new raw developing software by Adobe (Adobe Camera Raw 10 and newest Lighroom), actually they added a new feature : "Range Mask" (located down below in "Basic tab") that allow us to easily fix problem with high contrast with Luminance and colour choices. Not perfect, but it helped me to darken the sky with gradual filter while keeping the subject (monks) in their original exposure. Off course we need additional light to lighten up the subject and foreground. This was taken few years back in Bagan, Myanmar.
