good stuff. I wish cameras had a metering mode to meter for the brightest part of the image. Lately, I've been doing it myself manually underexposing nearly everything. I find the images are much more pleasing to my eye.

If I remember right, Luke, my Olympus E-M10 had such a feature, and metering for the darkest part of the image too. It was a very clever little beast.

I know what you mean - I really like images with strong directional light and shadow (like city streets) where the camera is metering to correctly expose the bright portions, and the shadows are rich and dark. Mainly I pick manual settings to get that look, just meter for the bright light and allow the shadows to go dark. Only minor shifts in exposure to accommodate predominantly lighter or darker situations.
