Further testing of EXR auto. I did some flags yesterday:
The camera easily passed the test, not a single zone is "pierced throug".
Then this morning I stopped to watch the sunrise at the Vue-des-Alpes Pass. The owner of the local attraction, a "giant toboggan", has installed flags on the bridge over the toboggan track. How does EXR auto react with the violent contrast of the rising sun smack in the middle (well, not quite) of the image?
And with the sun hidden behind the thin veil of a nylon flag?
As you can see, the camera reacted by raising the exposure a tad in the second backlit image, since the intensity of the sun is a wee bit less. And of course the sun itself is overexposed beyond salvage. The darkest areas are really dark, too, but apart from that and IMHO it passed the test. With flying colours
Notes: all images are directly resized and have passed from LR3.6, without any treatment, to CS3 for my framing routine...
