Re: blown highlights w/50 1.8d

You used spot metering and it looks like the meter reading was taken from the dark trees in the BG, thus causing over exposure. You need to take more readings and decide what the best average is, or better still meter from the girls face and use that for your exposure. Perhaps even better, or at least easier, switch to matrix metering.
