Don't know much about digital cameras, but is it possible that it's taking the light reading and setting the exposure from the brightest part of the field? With my manual 35 mm, if I'm shooting a subject in front of a light source, I need to overexpose to get anything other than a silhouette...on automatic, the exposure would be set for the window, not the subject in front. If the setting was made on the basis of Vinnie (that's your white boy, yes? if not...apologies for hazel's senility ), then the rest of the room would be underexposed when Vinnie is prefectly exposed.

Just an idea. Don't know if automatic digital cameras set exposure the same way or not...
