Like Rick, I don't use any "permanent" exposure compensation. As with any camera feature, it's there to be deployed when the photographer knows it's going to help things.

In the situation where light is constant but subjects vary greatly in tone (in my case, aircraft against a blue sky) I too find manual exposure works well. Take a reference reading with the camera meter from grass in the same light, then use the indicated settings in manual.
