I understand the enthusiasm when someone gets excited when an OOC shot is successful, but to me it's important to get the composition and exposure correctly which leaves alot of opportunities in PP.

I'm new to this but Lightroom allows me to adjust the exposure, as well. Therefore, I'm wondering why you mention exposure as one of the things that really needs to be right when you snap the shutter?

A Girard may have a different reason, but for me, I always try to slightly under-expose my photos.  It's always easier to bring up the brightness or apply fill-light in an image, than try to fix blown out highlights.  The colors appear a bit more saturated in a slightly underexposed image - which I also find easier to work with, if need be.
