Re: DP Review Needs a Lesson (or I do)

I think you're right. But to be fair to the author, maybe he/she was talking about matrix/evaluative metering where the meter will meter a large amount of dark area thus make the moon very bright.

Exactly. And the "average" of this shot is a dark grey in most moon shots, not a light grey as the OP says, therefore the exposure is increased in automatic evaluative metering.
