So I hear you saying, 'Not every shot is an ETTR shot.' Use your personal photographer's experience whether you need to ETTR or not.

N disrespect intended...but I'm still a bit befuddled on how, when ( I understand thew 'why') to implement ETTR.

When doing so will reduce noisiness without causing other unwanted effects

makes sense thank you...'causing unwanted effects?'

Slowing the shutter so much you get motion blur.

Widening the aperture so much you get too shallow a DoF, or too much aberration blur.

Increasing the exposure so much you blow desired highlight detail (though by definition this wouldn't be ETTR, it would be EPTR = exposing past the right).
