    Could I have done something to make the photo brighter without the windows getting too bright? Used my flash? Or adjust exposure?

    Brian ..the beauty of this image is it is covering a wider exposure range. Regarding increasing the exposure of the living area, a flash could have done it. But if you did so, the image would not have this much range. If there is any chance of improvement exist on exposure, it is in increasing the range. High Dynamic range(HDR) is an option.

    http://dpanswers.com/content/tech_zonesystem.php Please see the above link for an explanation of the zone system. Alternatively if it is film you could use burn and dodge to bring the image close to zone 5. Similar techniques are available in software too. Please feel free to ask questions. I like to share whatever little I know.

    Thanks for the tips. It was digital and I will try reading about the zone system.

    Or if you did not want to blow the highlights in the window, you can increase the shadow slider in post if you have that option. It can work wonders.

    What software would I need for a shadow slider? Photoshop? Is there anything free?

    Hope this helps Gimp is free. Here is a tutorial using levels adjustment. http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-tool-levels.html If you are using Mac you can get GIMP by http://download.cnet.com/GIMP/3000-2192_4-10322178.html Or windows(Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP ) you can get GIMP by http://download.cnet.com/GIMP/3000-2192_4-10073935.html Alternatively you can use curves. I don't know whether GIMP have shadow highlight adjustment sliders as in photoshop.
