If I slightly move the s&h white point slider the image looks ok but the reality is that the dt histogram initially reports that the sky is 'blown'.
My experience using dt over several years is to always leave a little room at the high end of the histogram during the taking process. This has solved all of the highlight problems that I previously had. David On 04/08/2018 06:19 PM, Chris wrote: > Fascinating!
