    I don't know how @Roy1961 spotted this little guy. He was no bigger than my thumbnail.

    Taken at San Jacinto Wildlife area.

    you will get it and when you do its like a ahaaa moment , its really not hard just confusing at times until it sinks in
    matrix metering probably 75 percent of the time for me center weighted i use when shooting birds in flight and spot occasionally for certain shots , once you understand what the camera is metering it makes it easier to choose the right one

    looking forward to seeing some more of your shots

    Thanks, Egosbar.

    I am going to read up on Matrix Metering (again ). I know a lot of people who use it successfully.

    i use all three but general would be matrix , i think having spot metering and auto iso would of been a problem with erratic exposures on A mode

    That seems to be the consensus. Time for some matrix metering practice.

    Went on a photowalk with @Roy1961 at San Jacinto on Sunday. We got there before it opened on a very foggy Sunday morning. Roy spotted the "white rainbow," and, of course, neither one of us had our wide lens. We were lucky enough to see several along the road. We both made an attempt to capture this tree that was at the end of one. I made some adjustments to at least try to show what we were looking at. The original file looks like a soft focus tree with mild vignetting around the edges. Looked pretty cool.

    Yeah, that dog portrait is fantastic. I'll also just chip in and say that I use manual mode with auto ISO for almost everything. For action it keeps exposure where it belongs. For compositions where you have plenty of time, you just set things where you want them, including getting the ISO where you want it, by changing shutter speed and aperture. It's manual mode using only two knobs instead of three.

    So much of it comes down to what you are used to, and once you are familiar with the set up, it becomes second nature. At least that's how it seems to work for me.
