Yup, being in Hokkaido we have meters deep snow, and it's in almost every photo I have taken in last month. Not once have I had to do the "expose for snow". Metering has nailed it every time!

Looks way too dark to me.

It's more important how an image looks as a thumbnail than how it looks at 100%.

I think both the D610 and D800 tend to expose snow on the dark side ... no matter though as the leverage in post is huge.
