I thought this was a good example of the dynamic range you can get with careful exposure. Perhaps somewhat controversially, I'm not a big fan of the DR200/400 modes as I feel that whilst the preservation of highlights is admirable, the resulting compression of shadow tones isn't something that I really like. I'm much happier shooting carefully or in RAW, or underexposing then using -2 on shadows than I am with DR modes. Any opinions?

I'll say one thing, that 18mm gets a bad rap in my view.  That pic is beautiful and looking through the 18mm group on Flikre that thing turns out some seriously nice photos.  Great job.
