The reason people keep digital manipulation rejections is because of overuse of the shadow/highlight tool. Unless your name is Matt Hicks or Mitch Goldman, there's almost no need to ever go over 25 on either Shadow or Highlight. Also, when you adjust shadow/highlight, you have to increase the contrast to balance the shot out. Shadow/highlight muddies the shot a bit, while a 7-10 increase in contrast will reduce the muddiness.
