Re: Is it better to under or over expose?
You can't answer this question until you specify what a "correct" exposure is. For some people, it is important to retain highlight detail, whereas others want nice mid-tones with canned standard processing. You can easily construct a situation where the same unprocessed image could be called overexposed, correctly exposed, and underexposed by three different people.
