I was wondering your thoughts on blown highlights .
Is there a certain level that is acceptable ?

Is there a different level of acceptability for Black and White or Color photos?
Here are 2 photos that got me thinking about this .... one seems to work more than the other.. Though I am not saying these are great shots .. just two examples to illustrate my question....
Any suggestions on how to "see" in this type of lighting ...

Post your photos with blown highlights that you like ... I know you got some

Thanks ,
