The moments are absolutely fantastic, great action

To bad only the third image is really sharp

If this were my images I'll try to recover the highlights a bit more

It should be great to live so close to a place like this

The D750 I'm using has a slight tendency to overexpose the highlight under contrasty situations.

Setting the Picture Control to "Flat" and the Active D-lighting to "Auto" helps noticeably, although it doesn't solve the problem completely.  The balance between the retaining of the shadow details and the preventing of the blown out hightight is better than underexposing a bit.

FWIW, I use CC2018 for the processing.

I have noticed some improvement with highlights in images from my D7200 by clicking on the Auto button in the LRCC 2018 Develop module. I recalled Ann had mentioned using the Auto button awhile back, and it has helped in my limited experience.
