Thanks Adrian,

I am in Manual mode and with zero compensation the picture seems flat almost a bit overexposed during daytime (no flash). Then I have to decrease shutter speed and that shifts the exposure to minus side to get some good contrast. No before pictures at the moment but I will post them sometime later this week.

Hm.  There's literally no such thing as exposure compensation in manual mode.  Exposure compensation is a setting (usually controlled by the rear dial) that only applies to automatic and semi-automatic modes: P, Av, and Tv.  The point is to override the exposure that was automatically computed by the camera.

So whatever you think you're doing, you're not setting exposure compensation.

I think you might be best off telling us exactly what buttons you're pushing.
