Studio NX saves Yosemite Falls from Exposure Hell
3

About two weeks ago, my wife and I went to Yosemite NP to view and photograph Horsetail Falls.  Prior to our viewing and photography of Horsetail Falls, we went for a "walk around the park" in Yosemite Valley and enjoyed taking snaps of the scenes.

I took this shot of Yosemite Falls where I was careless with my exposure compensation and got a strongly underexposed shot:

In Nikon Studio NX (replacing Capture NX-D), I was able to easily correct the exposure hell in this image by changing the Active D-Lighting (ADL) from None to High:

I like this PP corrected exposure. I have found that images from theNikon D7500 often correct very well for exposure mishaps by this method.

Wishing all avoidance of exposure hell!
