Thanks for the comment Pete. Could you explain what you feel is the MOST effective use of the histogram, and also other ways the histogram might be used to help provide the "perfect" pic? Am I assuming correctly that using it as a light meter just involves sliding the peaks more to the right side? I always shoot only NEFs, and then create jpegs in PP. TIA
