Yes. Blue clips first.

Bright cloud regions can clip too. Pure white means equal amount of R, G and B. But if those regions are bright and white, low-level clipping with CMOS sensors is harmless (clipped regions render as white!). As overexposure increases, CCD sensors will exhibit blooming artifacts well before CMOS sensors.
Basically, I mean, ah—well, let’s say that for me anyway when a photograph is interesting, it’s interesting because of the kind of photographic problem it states—which has to do with the . . . contest between content and form.
