First, the OOC RAW, with 2.33 EV of positive exposure compensation dialed in (using the blinkies to ETTR). I could have added another 1/3 to 1 EV of exposure comp to this one without blowing any highlights.

Note: I made a mistake when I took this photo - I should have dialed ISO down to 200 before boosting exposure compensation. It would have been better to shoot at 200 ISO with 1/3 EV positive exposure compensation, but the resulting file works well as an example of ETTR.



OOC RAW (I cropped it, that's all)

Here's the same file after processing in LightRoom 4.3:

After processing in LR 4.3. No blown highlights.

My advice would be to test your old techniques. If you're applying 45-year-old techniques to brand-new technology, you may be unnecessarily hobbling your new technology and not taking full advantage of its capabilities, gaining little-to-nothing in return.
