    Either extreme w/no detail is a great tool to edit out/draw attention away from something(from the clothes to the face), to something else. So metering is used to enable the film to see something/print out w/detail, or to eliminate something you don't want the viewer to dwell on. That goes from 'high key' to 'silhouette'. In terms of landscapes, I always have decisions to make about the difference in illumination between the sky and the ground in the same shot, and how much I want the clouds to stand out for instance.
    That's fine if you are doing B&W, but with color transparencies you often don't have the film latitude to work with.

    "That's fine if you are doing B&W, but with color transparencies you often don't have the film latitude to work with."................Yes, agreed, I used to shoot quite a bit of transparencies, I now shoot mostly b&w, Portra, and Infrared now, and I will shoot transparency film now now and then because of the fact that it's so unforgiving of overexposure.

    I love the look of Velvia 100F, though.
