Knowledge is power.

Sir Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626)

Blooming

A pixel on a digital camera sensor collects photons which are converted into an electrical charge by its photo diode. Once the full well capacity of the pixel is full, the charge caused by additional photons will overflow and have no effect on the pixel value, resulting in a clipped or overexposed pixel value. Blooming occurs when this charge flows over to surrounding pixels, brightening or overexposing them in the process. As a result detail is lost. Blooming can also increase the visibility of purple fringing.
