Re: A few questions...

It is not a Merged HDR, true. I used a 0.9ND graduated filter to capture the sky, in camera.
It is created from a single tonemapped raw fie at -2EV.

Raw files have 12EV available, most of which you can't see, Jpegs have about 5EV.

I used the information from the raw to create this balanced (?!) image, so yes it is a high dynamic range pic. Who knows? Merged shots shots take time. During which, the wind blows, clouds move and trees move. The single Raw is a good solution to these fleeting ghosts.

I've examples of both 3 shot bracketed + -2EV merges, and single Raws, here....
