Jiskefet -

HDR pictures looks like paintings, there are very close to art. Paintings have 100:1 dynamic range, daylight image has maybe 100,000:1. Sensor capability 1000:1 (if ISO 100).
My point is - we must use HDR all the time to catch up all visible information.

Apple is perfect for adjustment (Aperture 3). If you have HDR image, you can increase contrast and turn image back from the art to a photo picture, I doubt it is better. Art is not realistic.

Usually I expend histogram to touch left and right border, and then move middle area to the right or to the left (in 80% it makes picture better). It takes 1 minute.

But Aperture 3 has preset ("Lift Metadata"), so it can remember your adjustment and "Stamp Metadata" to the next similar picture just for 1 second.
I'm sorry for my English,
