Trevor, do you find "average" metering generally the best for these sort of scenes?

Average is meant for everything.

Multi is meant for face detection, I believe.

I never use spot - Average works so well.

I do find on the X20 that it often under-exposes (at least for landscapes). That's using multi. Once or twice I tried average, it seemed a little darker so went back to multi. I probably need a broader comparison in different lights / scenes to reach a conclusion on this.

That explains it - use Average (it's designed for normal use).

If it's darker, you would adjust using the EV Compensation wheel.
