Re: Leaves (1)

There are two terms which cover this, Susan

Overexposure: which technically is caused by an incorrect exposure

or

Blown Highlight : which is more [ in my mind] to do with editing.

Unfortunately both terms have come to mean the same nowadays.

Overexposure can be brought back by some of the modern editing programmes, but better to practice with your cameras settings to get the exposure spot on first time.
The 2nd then becomes a matter of choice rather than accident

Hope this makes sense
