    Hi,

    I didn't think that might have been the best option either. The background is already in deep shadow and if the cliff and the trees to the left are the main subject, correctly exposing for the ground would have made them even darker, losing more details in the process.

    Some suggestions here, which might not be the best option are...
    To leave out the pavement from the photo and concentrate on the background... To wait until the sun provides a more even lighting across the the road and the cliffs... Or to use a graduated neutral density filter to reduce the brightness on the lower right portion... These are just some suggestions and there are probably many more ways around the problem...

    Hi,

    Sorry, I was speaking with regards to the comments on the 2nd photo..

    As for the 1st photo, perhaps an additional 1/2 - 1 stop might help in bringing out more details on the cliffs. It looks slightly underexposed on my screen here. Then again, light from the afternoon (I suppose you mean sometime around mid-day) sun is often flat and uninteresting. A better time would often be the early morning and late evening. Well, a good attempt nevertheless...

    Hi,

    The exposure compensation depends pretty much on what is the current lighting condition and there is really no magic figure as to how much to compensate...

    In general if you are shooting negative, the photo looks nicer when slightly overexposed than if it's underexposed. On the contrary when shooting slides, the photo generally looks nicer when it's slightly underexposed than when it's overexposed.
