I believe I have my own answer here, but wanted to post this for more opinions/answers. The two sample photos here intrigue me. One is untouched and the other has had only a black point and white point set. Disregard the blown out sky, I have no question with that as I was metering off the foreground. This image is quite obviously a rather low contrast scene. Analysis of the histogram seems pretty straight forward to me, so I don't need to hear "It's underexposed"..I know it is underexposed. Regardless of how I exposed this scene, I am unable to reproduce the (processed) look out of the camera. Of particular concern to me is the overall (Veil) or (fog) to the image when the two are compared. So, the question is: "Can the post processed image be produced out of camera w/o post processing?" I can certainly construct a custom tone curve, though that is obviously NOT the way to go around shooting.
