ETTR is a technical decision, not aesthetic IMO

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.

That's entirely up to you. You won't read the answer to that in this thread -- this thread has told you why, now you decide when.

Think back to your film days. Certain choices were aimed at getting a result in image quality, for example the zone exposure technique, or the decision to use low-ASA film speed. It's up to you to decide when you want to use them. Maybe you never did! That's up to you. Just like them, ETTR is a way to get the image qualities a certain way, and you get to decide when to take advantage of that.
