I photographed sections of Muir Woods last Sunday with the D200 using the center-weighted metering pattern and a three-frame bracket: one stop under, correct exposure, and one-stop over. (Also "road-tested" the 70-200mm, f2.8 zoom. Awesome lens!) At home, I used the overlay picture function on the D200 for the first time: one-stop under plus correct and one-stop under plus one-stop over.

Have not transfered the photos to the computer. Based on the camera's histogram, I found that the overlay tended to flatten the histogram as well as spread the histogram over all four segments. Once I have loaded the photos, I will also practice combining photos using photoshop.

Has anyone on the list used this function on the D200 or another Nikon? Your opinion?
