My advice is based on the 9000 which is basicly the same. Many of your examples are photos of dark objects/foreground/against a bright sky. Getting a good balance under these conditions is nearly impossible without post processing. I suggest you underexpose by -1/3 to -2/3 EV under those conditions and bring up the dark areas with a good photo editor. The following link is for a photo that was done that way. The sky was so bright it was washed out and the foreground was so dark you could hardly see it. I brightened the shadows and darkened the sky for a more acceptable result.

HEya Tom!

Thanks for the advice! I'm using more exposure with the camera againt the sky, plus the exposure/shadow/highlight adjustments in CS2. Works great!

Cheers!
