This common printing problem frequently has more to do with local contrast, or simply a desired effect, rather than exposure. You can't always Zone your way out of things. That's why we need to work on printing.
    Jesus, you made so much more out of my advice than was intended. None of what you say is accurate to the tenor of my post, which is to offer other possible pre-exposure solutions to the OP, one of which is thoughtful exposure, rather than parroting what has already been said. Like I said natural light photography isn't for wimps. I use the ZS and I do plenty of burning (and dodging). Ameliorate, look it up. Nothing like the mere mention of the ZS to bring the haters out.

    I don't hate you or the Zone System. Advice is fine, but you start out by telling the guy it's essentially a lost cause and lansdcape photography isn't for wimps? Without seeing the picture or the negative how do we know Zone System controls, filtration etc. would have helped? Maybe the guy did everything perfectly and he just wants a slightly darker sky. Yeesh.
