That second shot is very nice Max. It has such obvious religious significance - Cedric in the great church on his knees and praying to the omnipotent Canon .

By the way - I've noticed a common theme on the shots here when looking at the EXIF - a lot of the shots were taken with the exposure dialled back to a certain extent (maybe only -1/3 to -2/3rds of a stop). I pretty much always dial negative exposure myself, which sort of goes against the digital adage of 'shooting to the right' - i.e. maximise the exposure right up to the clipping point. Maybe we've all had too many blown highlights in the past, and the current sensor technology does make it easier to increase exposure later if needed. I hereby declare that we should all 'shoot to the left' in future. You read it here first .

I usually dial back exposure a bit myself.

I suspect that the -EC correlates to using evaluative metering.

You need to explain more . I often dial in a negative exposure bias, but I'm not sure how that relates to evaluative metering (which I would use - more often than not). Is this because evaluative metering would more likely blow the highlights?

...evaluative -as I understand it- evaluates your image and lays emphasis on -what the camera thinks- is the subject, and then weighs in the 'rest'... this often results in highlights being blown, simply because it doesn't expose for them... to correct this you can dial in minus EC - and 'pull' a little on your images in PP (pull them up, as they will be a little darkish) - or use your experience and the <*> button to lock exposure while taking more of the sky in view, i.e. point your camera upwards, so that more 'sky' (the area highest possible to OE) is in the metering/equation.

make sure not to mix the methods, as then you will be underexposing by 1 1/3 - 1 2/3 stop, which is rather a lot to 'pull' afterwards... (might introduce unwanted noise )

...hope this is understandable, *my* 0.02...
