If they are underexposed then you'd expect the shot of the lad which has more of the window in it to be more underexposed than the girl's shots, I think.Maybe the lad's underexposure is somehow "neutralised" by the fact that overall the light is much brighter at midday?

Anyone care to comment on the above comment?

We'd need to know more about the metering. Spot, center weighted, matrix? Which focus indicator was in use, what was it centered on? Was compensation applied to the meter or manually from the point measured? ...

The F5's meter is very nice and very sophisticated, but far from un-foolable.
