Cannot resist. Here’s another example of exposing for the highlights, then pulling out the shadows. The setting sun, even if already red-ish, still has an astonishing brightness. I needed to set the shutter time manually, the maximum exposure compensation of -3 stops was not sufficient to avoid to blow out the sun’s spot on the photo.
I am still impressed. Silently. No dancing anymore this time. All cool now.
Actually, to be honest, the picture as shot still showed a small blow-out on the camera’s display. But the camera’s histogram is not always correct. I think it derives the latter from a JPEG-preview created in camera, but the RAW file has way more leeway.
See my last post.
Really, shoot RAW! If you’re serious about photography, that is.
