Is it just me or is this shot a bit overblown...seems too bright. Or is the backlight set too high on my LCD?

but like nick said...can't go wrong w/ compositions when you have a cute kid in the pic.

Depends on your monitor I use Sony 19" CRT or my 15.4" laptop and the Sony monitor tends to be mellow the LCD tends to be
brighter and cooler....

I think - 1/3 to -1/2 EV would have been better in hindsight the dark car behind probably biased the metering in favour of shadows, I did want to grab the shot quickly so no time for camera fiddling ;-)
Of late I run the FZ1 with a -EV by default matrix metering works fine mostly I do use spot as well, problem there with a candid street shot is you need to meter off a mid tone / focus /frame / all in an instant .... you could probably meter of the subjects face tho.
