Peering very closely (with my own 58+ year eyes), I can just faintly see the detail in the white. It proves we all must be careful when giving constructive criticism because it may turn out that all we're really criticising are the limitations of contraptions (monitor, jpeg compression).

Related is my view of blown-out white: at times, it's utterly effective.

The hightlights are blown out in the first shot. This only means that there's not details to recover. To my eyes it seems so... My eyes are 38+

Folks,

For the record, the shot you are looking at on the screen of the purple calla lilly does have some blown highlights.
The JPEG compression also worked against me and yes ohenry, you are correct much of it can be corrected in post-processing.

Aloha and thanks for your constructive comments.
