Thanks Jon,

I did not want to pre-judge my pics but to await the comments of others, but the in-camera Highlights Shadows (here set deliberately to -5) have turned my pics into garbage.

So in general I am guessing that this is not Gold, it is more Fool's Gold. But it may or may not have uses at less extreme settings and on different subjects.

[ E.G - i-Zoom - with my FZ330, at extreme i-Zoom, "2344mm", at least one gets an empowering or at least novel user experience, without totally destroying the image. Fun, but in general (though not always), not Gold but Fool's Gold. ]

I am an unreconstructed JPEG shooter, but many thanks to you and to Nick (gardenersassistant), I always use Adobe Camera Raw in PSE, when necessary, which suits my simple needs, and of course the Highlights and Shadows functions there are Gold.

Thank you for your PSE results, very nice.
