Tonight it's side-lit, only the western half is lit. You'll need to open up a bit more, but it's safe to start at sunny-16 and then bracket (pretty widely) for more exposure. With the 500mm (+2x converter), you need to watch camera shake. You also have a fixed aperture, right? Try to choose a film that gives you good detail, but higher shutter speeds, maybe 200 to 400 ISO.
