3) The Problems with Dark Backgrounds
If your subject is a much brighter object than the background, say it is a street light or a white object in the sunshine, then you will normally get a correctly exposed subject, but the background becomes very dark and you can struggle to make out any details.
A large area of dark background behind the subject which take up a lot of the picture can cause your subject to become too bright. This has the effect of making your subject look very washed out, with very little detail or definition.
