    Localized adjustments affect 'non-local' areas

      Sometimes, applying an adjustment brush stroke or a grad filter in one area of the image, causes side effect changes in other areas, not supposed to be affected.

      In the example below, I have applied a grad filter to the upper side of the image. And though that was the only adjustment applied, this has caused massive burned-out ring around the sun (that was outside of the scope of the grad filter).

      This is a Lightroom 2.3 RC screen-shot, but I have tested in CS4 and ACR 5.0 and observed the same behaviour.

      Here's a related post in Lightroom forum http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b8105e/12 with more samples (from a Canon camera).
