The blue car

The first pic of the blue car is very close to how it looks in reality. Highlights Shadows at default.

I made a mistake with the second photo, I meant to darken highlights and lighten shadows (=HDR direction), but the -5, -5 setting should have been -5, +5. Labe has since taught me about that.

Anyway, darkening the highlights had made it flat and boring, for me, but somehow it has paled the blue, not how it looks in reality.

I may re-do it, using the 0/0,  +2/-2 and-2/+2 settings, same as the 3 later Jug photos.
