I meant to say lower right, not lower left.
This shot of the Cordoba cathedral, once a mosque, is rich in incongruous decoration, and you isolate its powerful rhythms quite well here. If you had placed your spot metering target on the brightest spot in the frame at lower left, your image would be even stronger, Mo -- because that overexposed area draws the eye away from the beauty of the rhythms elsewhere. The entire image would have become darker, and more mysterious. Practice your spot metering techniques -- always looking for the brightest spot. In this case, you would focus and expose by bringing the spot meter's tiny target area in the center of the viewfinder down to the lower right corner, lock your focus and exposure, and then, holding the shutter button halfway down, bring the image back to this framing and shoot.
