Image 018 is of a flying Shelduck.  Its great to get the right lighting on these species as it really shows off their bottle green head and the irridescent green patch on their wing.

Sheduck, Tadorna tadorna, Gloucestershire, January, 2012.

    • I’ve never used spot metering to be fair. I always use evaluative metering. Spot metering tends to be used in difficult lighting conditions and want to meter a very small portion of the subject/ scene (about 4% of the frame). As I use evaluative metering all the time I tend to know how the camera is going to react in different lighting conditions and change the exposure compensation accordingly. Hope this helps.
