Samu, are the pics underexposed on purpose? Some of the trees and landscape look completely blackened out with no details visible.

In one of the GV snaps the tyres and wheel well are completely dark. Is that done using the shadow option?

When the major part of the frame includes brightly lit objects like sun or white car, the darker objects obviously get underexposed. If I try exposing them correctly, then I will totally overexpose the brighter objects. It is always a compromise, it is up to the photographer to choose the right balance. Generally it is better to underexpose than overexpose.

If you notice the first pic, I have come very close to overexposing the GV, yet the trees are still dark. Given the same light, the brighter objects reflect more light more than darker objects.

This is even further away. Listen, the color temperature was very very warm in reality. When I applied auto-level, it made it cooler, your version is way more cooler, it looks like early morning than evening.
