Quote:If there is nothing blown out, and you determine the dress to be too bright, you need to adjust the tonal curve (a bit less contrast).
I'm not saying right or wrong here but;
My take would be not change the settings on the entire image if only the dress is blown out, but only to reduce the brightness on the dress only........ either by the highlight slider or the exposure slider using the adjustment brush in LR or PS. (RAW only)
The adjustment brush allows "isolated adjustments" within an image to:
Exposure. Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Clarity, Noise reduction, Colour balance, Saturation, Sharpness etc.of course only in RAW.
This way only the dress gets adjusted leaving the correct balance exposure for the rest of the shot!
