The one thing I have learned doing photography is to focus as much on light as much or maybe even more than the subject.  After all,  what is a subject without decent light to insure the subject is truly that...the subject.   I find myself in a big hurry sometimes.  When doing so often the exposure settings are overlooked in tough lighting situations.  With this photograph of the elk on the Madison, I thought before I took.  It is a -1.3 exposure compensation.  If I wouldhave let the camera figure the exposure the highlights on the elk would have been completely burned out.  I love this type of lighting.  The subject is lit (side lighting as well!) and the backdrop is in the shadows.
