Last night I was thinking what Mark said about his intent, and mentioned before that I was unsatisfied doing the same.
Then again I realised I often do something similar.
When photographing with 35mm I sometimes raise the exposure a lot to try and blow the lights in an attempt to give the backlighting a soft look. Like an archway where I want the back white and soft.
I think this is somehow similar to what Mark is getting at.
