the sky seems properly exposed but the subject is really dark. the subject should be almost 2 stops brighter.
No way of doing that and keeping the sky or background properly exposed unless I really pushed the darks in lightroom and that would just get ugly. The direction of the sun creates a nice contour light and a good contrast of player on background which is important when almost everything in the shot is in focus. I see where you're coming from, I would just rather save the sky for a more dramatic effect.
