After a few peoples opinions, does this still from a clip look over exposed?

Can't seem to find them in Adobe, not in the Reference Monitor.

It's difficult to answer without knowing the context, seeing the shot in context, etc., however, it is very high contrast, and the whites are a bit blown out. Look at the restaurant sign, you can't really read it, cuz there's little detail there, and the white dresses of the two women are also pretty blown away. I would hazard a guess that the people who don't like it don't like the limited dynamic range of that camera, because they can sense it does not match what they would see with their eyeballs.

See I agree with you, but they were warned of the camera before filming.

If you are using CC 2015, the reference monitor is not longer where you'll find the scopes. On a Windows machine, look in the Windows dropdown menu for "Lumetri Scopes", and begin to enjoy scopes that display in real time.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2015.02 (as of 6/2016)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.

This is a difficult shot to expose for, you are screwed whichever way you go, but if it was me shooting I would have opted to protect the highlights and hope to dig out the shadows in post. However as David states we don't know the camera used and what the setting were, maybe there was an option to shoot in log and that would have helped a lot. Panasonic cameras also have the option of resetting the gamma and the knee to help with shots like this.

You will just have to work hard with your color correction using masks to adjust to the best of your ability. Try working in Resolve and that will give you the most ability to correct.
