Well said Bob!

 

Many companies have gone bankrupt by being the most efficient producer of products that nobody wants to buy.  Efficiecny without simultaneous effectiveness is worthless.

Re: Car LED lights are pink/purple, not red

I am still curious what the lights would look like with a longer exposure. I am a little surprised that a CPL filter would have no effect on the lights.

I get the impression that you are close to your wits end, and are rushing for a solution, instead of taking a moment to observe and think it through.

Re: Car LED lights are pink/purple, not red

At the very least, can you take some shots at varying exposure compensations to make sure that if the lights are not blown out, they are red? Also try a shot in RAW to see if that gives you enough dynamic range to lower the highlights to make the lights red.

 

But you aren't even trying. You need to determine the exact cause of the problem before you can fix it.
