Need advice from those who use Capture NX2 and Photo Mechanic.

The images attached are a screenshot of one RAW image from my D700.
Standard Picture Control with ADL at Normal.
Direct from camera no processing at all.

One image is the NX2 histogram plus Shadows from View menu.
The other is exactly the same opened firstly in PM with its Blown Shadows checked.

Why is there such a difference? I am sure the PM histogram is the correct one of the two.

The camera was set to an exposure fine tuning of 4/6 because that is what was required to prevent blown out highlights,(typical of my D700 & not the point of this post)(chorus of "the D700 exposes to the right" if by that it means big spikes against the right edge yes that's what mine does)

Just asking what is the difference?

Thanks for looking
