and you know so many folks would learn about their photography a hell of a lot quicker if they followed the same routine from the get-go. But persuading someone who has just shelled out hundreds or thousands on their first camera, to use it in manual mode and dont look at the meter.....well forget it !

All looks good, glad you got it sorted. Maybe your computer monitor is a bit too bright !....no only joking (although most folks' monitors are too bright)

Nice to see I am not the only one that remembers sunny 16

Take care

Luminance versus RGB histogram, and the fact that a different set of development parameters (Lightroom default versus your camera settings) being applied to the raw image will both affect the shape and spread of the histogram.

The two histograms are actually very similar. Any differences in the peaks is probably due to

1. the camera showing a Luminosity histogram whearas Lightroom is showing a RGB histogram
2. Lightroom is displaying a histogram basis default parameters which have been applied to the raw file, whearas the camera histogram is using your own "muted" profile.

Having said that, both histograms show that the "brightness" ends about 60% of the range. From the shadows being cast in the pictures it was obviously a very bright day when you were photographing. You have seriously underexposed the image as indicated by the histograms failure to show any light tones on the right hand side of the scale. The fact that your camera LCD shows a burnt out image has to do with the settings for the LCD display, not your exposure settings. Reset that correctly and start again.

Have a look at this tutorial and the one that follows it http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/histograms1.htm
