Dear All,

In their December 2010 issue, Outdoor Photographer give 25 "Pro Tips". The fifth really puzzled me: it recommends "Dialing down exposure by a half-stop to give colors a boost". Indeed, says OP, this "takes the shadows down so those blacks are really black" while the "colors already pumped up now become more alive" and it further "tricks the mind into seeing things as sharper".

What about setting a post-processing black point instead ? What about shooting to the right ? Does OP want us to shoot to the left now ? What about details in shadows ?

What do you guys think ?
