True, but on the same token, what's the impact when you stop things down like they did in the article? If you only shoot wide open you might not notice an issue with the IQ, but what about the coatings as well?

@jrista - Right, currently I'm going through ohter print related questions on the site; however, the biggest issue is that I just don't have my own professional grade printer at home so it's a long term problem for me that I'm not in a huge rush to resolve at this time.

@jrista - Well, I've been playing with the settings that you recommenced in LR3 and it's close to what you should but now I'm running into issues with printing which is a whole separate issue.

This is very helpful, but what sort of settings should I look at in LR3 as it doesn't have the same extent of highlight and shadow recovery as LR4?

@gerrit - I actually managed to get really lucky with two events that didn't need any extensive post processing (mostly cropping) due to the intensity of the lights. However, I agree, the ones that I saw most of the time were more like a light gray mist shimmering in the sky.
