    So I've had my D300 for a few months now, but have just now figured out how good of a dynamic range this sensor has. I've heard about it but haven't seen it myself til today.

    I took this picture of my GF the last time I was home. I overexposed the crap out of this and was messing around with it in PS. Started playing with curves and quite literally saved this photo. I am amazed at the detail that remains even when highlight are blown to hell.

    Here is the original


    And here is the final product with curves adjustment and minor sharpening in PS.


    I still can't get over it... I :heart: my camera.
