The first question I have for you regarding the scene in your example is "what is the subject(s) and where do you want them to fall?" Tough to make a metering plan without knowing what the expectation for the print is.
I will quote myself though:
My second question for you is "what are you willing to compromise in this situation; highlight detail, shadow detail, print contrast?" And "what other tools are you willing to bring to bear, reflectors, strobes, scrims, pre-flashing, dodge, burn?"
I ask because the scene in your examples probably won't straight print acceptably, seriously if you want detail in the door and the shaded bark which are how many stops apart?
