    I cant believe this, 'cause my histogramm must lay me... Ive converted with raw an i can look for it what overexposed or not.

    Some other people agree with me, but whats your idea?
    Regards Swen

    Histograms are ok, but you should use your eyes too, not only the tools. The fuselage on both pictures are too bright, they almost seem as they totally whitened. Reduce the exposure a bit when converting from RAW, and use "Fill Light" or other tool to make the rest of the picture a bit brighter.

        The picture is not overexposed. But it just looks like it and it ain't good. In this case, most of the effect comes from rest of the picture, which is pretty dark. Try reducing the exposure A BIT when converting it from RAW, and use Fill Light or Shadow\Highlight tool to lighten up the rest of the shot (but not overdo it too).

        Try to achieve something like this: (I don't have the original so I had to improvise. And on a silly monitor in my office too)



        Hope this helps!

        Cheers.

            You have a typical exposure for such shots at DUS. In editing it is very important to very careful when adjusting the levels. Clipping the blacks will make the pictures overexposed. I recommend using a suitable curve to brighten up the dark and mid tones a little while giving the highlights a subtle reduction.
