  • I use highlight recovery but it is limited - if you are really overexposed it's no use whatever your software, IMO. However I have found the HDR function in Silkypix can also help with highlight ...
  • They do this deal every so often. I bought my license on one of those offers a couple of years ago, it's normally an offer on the version before the most recent one. I recommend it to anyone, but ...

    Hang on . . .  are you the Stig ?  :-D

    Thanks for looking. That's some drive ! But depending on time of year sunrise to sunset will vary a lot !! Cheers, Rod
