A few minutes after taking the image of the white, '58 Corvette, a white '56 Thunderbird pulled in about 40 feet away. About that time, I installed the polarizing filter on my 16-85mm lens and shot some pictures of the T-Bird.
They were so bad, I discarded them. I wondered about the difference and did some research. Thom Hogan's book on the D7000 explains that the metering should be changed to Spot. Because shooting with Matrix confuses the computer. It tries to compare the current view with the 30,000 image database, but the filter mixes up reading.
Matrix metering shifted the Histogram off to the left. And car looked dull compared to the same color Corvette.
It was my first use of a polarizer and never anticipated the complication.
Just an FYI for you folks. I would appreciate more info on this matter, and decided more would see it here on the D7000 forum than in the Filter forum.
