I guess in my mind it should be that if the sensor is not blown out by excessive light, it should be able to capture the scene correctly. As I said, there is no evidence at all that the sensors abilities were exceeded by the scene. Yet to get the color correctly it took -1.8 ev in LR4. That is a HUGE adjustment. Surprising.

Now I know how to handle this situation but I'm not clear on why I have to handle it. Some scenes that are truly blown out need less adjustment than this simple image did. That's amazing!

That's why RAWis awesome for shots like this.  Just bracket next time and then pick and choose Or combined to create the perfect shot.  Someone great once said you make a photo, not take a photo and with today's camera's and software it's relevant.  I used to be a purist and have changed my mind a bit on what that great saying meant.  To me it means use the full scene and surrounds to find your angel and frame. Ten shot you want.  Same goes in post processing, make it the way you remember or how you wanted it to be.  So long as its true to your original vision your good  To Go!

Have fun!
