The setting sun, looking really gloomy. Spot-metered on the sun. These shots could have burnt a hole through my CCD. :D

almost, but not exactly. Centre-weighted gives more emphasis to the centre, say 9.5% of the frame. Spot metering gives total emphasis to the centre (typically a smaller area than centre-weighted) of the frame.

using center-weighted or the usual evaluative metering should give a brighter picture, but the sun will look very very bright. Or alternatively, up the EV.

spot metering is for the centre means the round or square focus gauge we got on our LCD or viewfinder?
