Something I often forget is to come out of evaluative metering and to go to spot where its needed to bring the shadows and mids back.  Guess I could throw in some compensation to bring the exposure up.  Have seen others try to capture the whole frame not realizing the dynamic range of the camera just wont do it.  So you have to decide what the center of the attraction is for the photo and if you get blown out highlights but you get the shot you want, thats the sacrifice….but I am sure you have plans to combat the dynamic range discussion with a lesson on HDR…
