>> “...to get better shadow detail – different exposure metering or higher ISO?”

The only reason you should set a higher ISO is if you need a faster shutter speed to stop motion or avoid camera shake.

Exposure compensation is what you use if you need to open up shadows or bring down highlights.

------------------------------

These images seem to be exposed well considering the fairly harsh light. The bright sunlight and the dark shadows exceed the dynamic range of the camera.

If your prints do not match what you see on screen you may need to calibrate your monitor. Then use D-Lighting (or highlights & shadows in Photoshop) to open up the shadows until it prints right.

Check out the printing forum for more info on monitor calibration and color management.
