    It kind of looks like it was centre or spot metered...

    metering mode: pattern

    Which brings me to another question ... what do all these metering modes do???

    I don't think you have mentioned what your camera is - I suspect 'Pattern' is
    like whole area or 'matrix' in the case of some..
    Spot metering meters just the very centre of the image and ignores the rest - helpfull sometimes with close portraits, centre weighted is similar - except a larger area and not totally ignoring the surrounding but biased towards the centre.

    Rooz, I would love to. But I'll be a D80 user starting today! Wooohoo I finally got one!

    No, but seriously, if I wasn't financially tight, I'd keep the D40. At this point, there's no reason for me to have 2 cameras, unless what RawPaw mentioned, if I'm doing a freelance photography that would require a backup, I wouldn't have second thoughts of letting my D40 go. Maybe later on I can pick one up again cuz I know I'll definitely miss the compactness and lightweight body of it.

    And for everyone that placed your opinion, I thank you and appreciate all of them.

    Sorry about that, when I wrote pattern, I simply copied it from the properties. The metering for that shot was matrix. Btw I have a Nikon D60

I just looked at Adorama and there's one for sale for $659. Thanks for everyone that replied btw
    If you're saving only 70$ to go used, it better have the original warranty, low shutter #'s and very mint. I've heard nothing but good things about Adorama (but I'm from Canada, lol) so you shouldn't have anything to worry about as far as post-sale service goes (if camera is bad and what not). I would try to keep the D40 for back up if I were you, but you know your money more than I do, so I think you can decide that one

    Thanks all. K1W1 you're a man who knows his gear. I'm impressed.
    The commentator said the left one was used in Korea and the right one in Vietnam if I remember correctly. I guess we keep our hardware a long time eh. Bit like the Brittish flying Swordfish off carriers in WWII.

    Love the shot of your folks Turo, I prefer your original exposure as they are a great subject and correctly exposed themselves.

    Here's another from the weekend, only about 100 shots to get this one as they were more predicatable than the artillery.

    Nice one DPR. I like how your camera handled the white pants. I think my D80 would've just completely clipped it
