Does anyone know how to avoid burn out when processing and increasing the contrast of flat images,
It seems to happen particularly where the sun is bouncing off water and the shot is into the light. I have had a couple of good images spoiled by burn-out and would like to avoid it in the future?

Hi Pippin

This question was in the wrong place, thought i would move it for you, might get more attention that way :) This is now in the Photographic Software and Post Processing section

Unfortunately you can not recover burnout or overexposure of the highlights as there is not data to recover.You should always meter for the brightest part of your picture and set the exposure.Your shadows will then be a little dark but these CAN be recovered using Highlight/Shadow control in your software. hope this helps
