I think you mean burn in the blown out highlights, don't you?
Actually, I am always confused over whether to say "blown out" or blocked up." My peabrain logic tells me that highlights get blocked up in the negative and blown out when it is printed.
Potato, potato. I think you're right though, the negative gets block up while the print will be blown out. But either way, I don't subscribe to one school of language. We're humans, we're adaptable.. figure it out!
