Most photographers in normal situations seek to avoid highlight clipping. Lightroom 4 has been designed to help accomplish that purpose. In your situation, where you are trying to achieve something different, it will be necessary for you to push the highlights to get the effect you are after. Alternatively, you could switch to PV 2010 if you feel that it produces a better result.

Thanks Jim, I agree Lightroom 4 does a much much better job in retaining detail in the highlights which I find very useful in pictures with high dynamic range..

I just wanted to make sure that it was not something that I was doing wrong or not doing at all.. but that's what I've already done where I switched to PV 2010 for these shots.. pushing the hightlights in PV 2012 had other side effects on the model that would have required more work to undo..
