Spot metering + backlighting + dark horse

A very tricky situation

Last week I had the same problem, and thanks God I had all RAW files. Many of my shots were heavily overexposed although I used matrix metering. As I figured out, it was the big, dark body of the horse that fooled the meter. I was in a hurry and forgot to meter off the rider's face....

I learned my lesson
