I don't know for a fact, but my first suggestion would be to look at
the number of overexposed pixels (at least one channel at 255) in an
image, if there are allot (by some measure) then you need another
exposure. Likewise if you have pixels that are 0 (or really small)
then you need another exposure on that end.
