"Metering versus ISO"

I am hoping you more experienced photographers (most everyone ) can give me some advice. Last weekend while attending a Celtic Festival I took some pictures with my D7000 and 24-120 f/4.

What I’m not happy with is how dark the shadow detail is. Which setting should I focus (pun intended ) on to get better shadow detail – different exposure metering or higher ISO? I was using matrix metering, ISO 200 in aperture priority mode. It was about 10:00am cool, and sunny. Below I’ve included two samples that have not had the EXIF data removed and show the lack of shadow detail.

Thanks for any advice you can give.

ADDENDUM: After looking at the posted pictures neither posted picture has shadows that look as dark as a printer picture or on my computer - strange, must be part of the conversion process during posting.

The first picture still shows some loss of detail in the shadows on her dress, and the second has a loss in the crowd on the right side in the background. I believe they still give you a sample of what the problem is.


Matrix Metering, f/5.6, 200 ISO, 0EV, FL: 82mm, Shutter: 1/320
Yes, I know - why did I cut her feet off?... it was a quick snap-shot.



Matrix Metering, f/8, 200 ISO, 0EV, FL: 38mm, Shutter: 1/500
A little blurry, but I was actively competing for space with a clear view in the crowd.
