Looks to me more like a metering issue, no?

no mistake! the meter is in the nice blue sky...if i did the meter to shadows what happened? yes it´s a very amazing feature to have. hope next canon sensores are able to do this or best.

Why would you meter the blue sky? Is that the subject of the photo?

I'm guessing he did this to avoid have the sky blown out.  So he preserved the highlights while still having the ability to liff the shadows in the foreground.
