nicely done exposure of the various layers. Am interested to know if you used the histogram to protect the highlights and metering method used
Thanks. Yes, I used the histogram to protect the highlights as much as I could. But, I also accepted the fact that there would be some blow-out around the sky and throughout the yellow in the sky. I used blinkie highlights to see what I was going to have to put up with. I was going to copy all the data for you, but Capture doesn't let you select it. I use Matrix metering and then Comped it +2.0. I used Matrix, because it was just what I happened to have the camera in at the time. Any metering, after looking at the blinkies and histogram would have worked fine. I've found that Matrix work pretty well for the vast majority of situations what I need a quick shot so my camera stays in that mode most often.
