The stuff outside the window on the right is still blown out. LR can get you a long way if you have a raw file, but HDR or proper blending of multiple exposures is still needed for extreme high/low differences.

I was attempting to capture the interior details of a historic artifact. I wasn't to concerned with the insulation on the pre-engineered steel building outside of the window. I could probably work on it some more and improve the look.

Regardless, no amount of changes will substitute for a tonemap with a file shot at -2EV or -3EV in this case. You can get close, but HDR is still better.

I agree with you though, I have a D800 and many times don't bother with tonemapping if I have a fairly well exposed raw file.

What is tone mapping? I have not heard of that yet.
