    Putting it out there is the first step for some good tips! It's been a while for me and I'm starting to get back into it, so thanks!

    Thanks. I have my camera set to spot metering too. Now I have set the pic preview to include the histogram preview along with pic preview to help gauge the exposure.

    I think the car serves well to define the scale of the landscape.
    The car also draws the eye and serves as a focal point because it's color contrasts well with the color of the hills.

    That will be a start but remember that if you are shooting in raw that the preview image and the histogram on the camera screen is based on a jpg not the raw image so there will be differences

    Ah. Forgot about that. Is that a good enough indicator about obvious indications of under/over exposure?

    Thanks.

    Each camera is a little different, so there's some experience required on the part of the photographer. I know for example that on my camera I can take the exposure right till the blinkies just start and still not be blown when I import into LR.
