This question is intended to help me conceptually understand what I am doing with exposure and white balance. Any insights are appreciated.

Assuming that I have a landscape image whose histogram is in bounds (no clipped highlights or lost shadow details). I could get the exposure and white balance exact by using a gray card in the field or adjusting it in Lightroom (I am shooting RAW). Would the use of the gray card provide any technical advantages vs. basic modifications in LR?

With my current understanding, the issue is whether I want to fine tune in the field or on the computer. Am I missing anything?


Any thoughts are appreciated.
