That's not bad Tony. You always want to meter to the white and pull up the black with post processing. It helps to have cloudy day, which will reduce the dynamic range from the white to black. Fill flash can sometimes help....but, mostly only with filling shadow areas.

The problem I have got is,

Their colorings are at each end of the spectrum (velvety black and vivid white) If I expose for detail in the black, the whites are blown out,or If I expose for details in the white the black is too dark. (I've tried setting dynamic range to max 400 but I think no difference) Seems it has to end up a halfway compromise (don't like compromise)
The light was not so good that day ,so not a lot of detail anyway but.

What Id like to know is, "does anyone know any tricks (they can share) on how to get around the exposure problem with such a subject?"
