Flashed out
Morning sun casting interesting shadows on the glass panes. A straight-forward shot in Auto mode, self-fired the flash and resulted in a washed-out picture (left). So how does one capture the ambience?

Story: Drive a manual.
Switching over to manual exposure and white balance produced a better picture but it came with a different set of problems. A tripod was required as the effective shutter speed was too slow and the brighter top half was overexposing. A Cokin neutral graduated filter solved that but introduced a pinkish cast that was later removed by desaturating the affected area.
