Bynx... this is for you.. what do you think?

This was a three exposure (-2, 0, +2) using a gray card for the initial "0" exposure. The landscape had a wide dynamic range, and HDR was useful for getting all of the detail to show. I could have expanded the exposures even further toward the Shadow side, but that would have resulted in an image that didn't look real (the trees need the dark shadows... IMO). The small image here doesn't do justice to the large image.. massive amounts of detail are lost.

Exposure Fusion (with some selective cloning in the background to kill the houses)

This is the original "0" image with WB and exposure based on 18% gray card ( note the loss of detail and color in the snow, and trees and sky)
