    As I recall, I metered on the sky here, then reframed. If the sun will be in the frame then point the camera somewhere where it's not included, meter then go for it.
    For the OPs information

    - this slide scan is a (under) side lit cloud scape & a nice shot
    - Kodachrome had a wider dynamic range than E6 eg it had a remjet backing layer like cine colour negative film

    but sunsets are like Chopin etudes not something you play in first music lesson.

    eg what you need is a lake or sea dead calm and underlit clouds and you might only have a few minutes time window... part of the shot will be silhouette...

    Indeed, these were taken with Velvia, an even more unforgiving film than provia :-D On that same roll however I'm sure there are a few duds that I don't remember ...

    As already stated, slide film has an extremely narrow exposure latitude, however, if you control the light it can be very rewarding too.
    I used this image in a post with regard to using Neutral Density Filters in general. It can also be used here with regard to sunrise / sunset photos and slide film as others have shown. This was taken using a Hi Tech Reverse Grad Filter. They're specifically designed for shooting these type of shots.
