    Virginia Farm - editing choices

    During a walk on this past Friday, came across this Fairfax, VA farm. With the clouds, grey skies, wind and snow, I was shooting in B&W.

    I like the third you can see the definition in the clouds better.

    Expose (to the) Right. That is extremely dark. I would hazard a guess that it's almost 2 full stops underexposed. Part of this comes from the snow and amount of white in the frame. The Red filter does a nice job on the sky, but everything else in the frame looks way too dark for my eyes.

    TenD,

    As it was, I was shooting in full manual mode with about a +2.6 ev. I say about, because I initially took a TTL meter reading and adjusted the shutter speed to +1.5 ev (which on a sunny day with the red filter usually exposes just about right) but the image on the view screen was way too dark, so I bumped it up to +2ev and it was still dark. Since the in camera meter only shows up to a +2ev and each click of the dial adjusts by 1/3 ev, I went up by two clicks after that. On the view screen, the exposure looked about right. However, once it was on a larger screen the under exposure was quite apparent.
