Exposure to the right: have you done?

I read  about this technique to use the histogram and overexpose intentionally without clipping the highlights, always in raw to obtain better pictures specially less noisie in the shadows.

In a recent travel to Cuzco I take this picture from the plane (some inevitable scratchs in the windows plane), as you see is overexposed. The picture was taked with a canon xs, with canon 18-55 mm, in 27 mm, iso 100,  f8, 1/60 sec, with +2 ev in exposure compensation, with aperture priority in raw format

 

The histogram shows exposure to the right.

After developing in camera raw, you have this picture

 

A crop of 300% of a shadow area doesn´t shows noise, I haven´t reduce noise with software.

 I will love to hear your experiences about this technique

Thanks in advance. MArio

Oh My!!!!!!.......gorgeous! (I do love B/W as well, that's why I initially asked about shooting in RAW -I'm going to try it and I now have the programs you suggested. Thanks so much.

Thanks Mario, I have the same problem. I prefer black and white because it not what everybody sees and is a true expression of what I see. It is also the way my photography began. I shoot color because it what most people want.

I think you've gone a tad too far judging the upper part of the photo. Keep in mind that the image you see on the camera's LCD isn't trustful at all representing the jpg version of the raw file you shot with all the in camera correction! I usually ETTR and I would recommend it!
