highlights. The result is more natural images with clearer details that more closely match what your naked eye
sees. DRO is particularly effective when shooting backlit portraits or any scene with a dramatic contrast between
background and foreground lighting. DRO Plus allows for even greater optimization by analyzing each region of
an image and performing additional image processing.
