Grossly under exposed....

Hey all,

I'm shooting with an Olympus OMD EM10 and recently had a grainy photo session while exploring Bangkok. I haven't had an issue with this before so I'm confused as to why it happened the other day.

I was shooting with M. Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm f4.0-5.6 II and a 58mm CPL digital HD filter.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There is no noticeable noise in this photo but your shot is grossly under exposed.  Probably by about two F stops.  Can't you see how dark the person is?

Also, why are you using a polarizer for this shot?
