Hi Blade.

40-50 for me.

Higher values don't usually seem to allow enough headroom for the specular highlights I like to use when lighting.

Using RED for example, i prefer to use the green indicator (50) in false colour for highlights in skin rather than the pink (which is 70).

Leaves more room for all important skin tone !
