Tip about Highlight Recovery. In some cases the recovery in PN is not real as the software can determine the color of a completely blown area and apply that color giving the impression that PN pulls in more. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Look at the settings in Color Correction under Color Recovery. You can set the defaults to Low, Med or High. High is 100% and for some extreme samples there can be a big difference between 99 and 100% where 99% does not add color to blown areas but 100% does. The flip side is that in some cases the color recovery of blown highlights are too saturated or just not natural. To that end a good starting point is 50% which is Low and then adjust as needed.

This is a very useful tool when combined with other Exposure settings, and in my tests I can often repair a totally blown area to look natural
