    To me the range of tonality is to narrow. There are no whites.

    I notice you have your camera's contrast set to HARD, the saturation set to HIGH, the sharpening set to HARD, and the metering set to Evaluative/Matrix or whatever it is Sony calls it.

    I would probably have use a smaller aperture than f/4.5 for that scene and used spot metering.

    Metering usually has 3 modes you can select from.

    What Sony calls multi-Segment
    Center-weighted
    Spot

    As it's name implies spot metering sample a small part of the scene.

    Your Sony users manual will explain how Sony approaches metering.

    I down loaded the users manual for the A-550 and looked it up for you, it's on page 97.
