Forbidden Gardens, in Katy, Texas, is a fascinating outdoor museum replicating some of China's major historic scenes. Guided tours take you back to the third century BC to view the first Emperor's amazing 8,000 piece terra-cotta army replicated in 1/3 scale. The tour continues to the intricately detailed miniatures of the famous Forbidden City in Beijing which served as palaces for nearly 500 years of Imperial rule in 1/20 scale.

You might notice this statue is a man-dog, a very exclusive use only. I tried to compensate the white balance for this one but you see the end result. It was very bright this day in Houston.

(constructive critique is welcome)

White is always difficult in bright light, the best way is using a graycard. Measure the light reflecting off the card by holding it in front of your camera (hold it so you can only see the card), let the camera remember the setting and then take the picture. It should be better.
Sometimes you still have to underexpose a bit.

It's a funny statue!

You can try spot light metering, but i think you know that already...
