Ah - light bulb moment - so it is the meter in the camera being too damn clever for its own good!

Yes, I use +0.7 in Italy - now I know why rather than fiddling till it looks right!

But am I right in thinking that using spot metering on the part of the scene you want correctly exposed is the right thing to do?

Or is HDR a better option?

Or shooting in RAW and post processing?

Just starting to get my head round the way the metering works - it was so much simpler in the old days of a box brownie with a fixed shutter speed and a lever for sunny & cloudy!
