Sorry I missed the sentence in between the images, if you have any good examples of the D7000 that are landscapey that would be most helpful. Shots with a bright sky and deep shadow.

My discipline around bright skies in landscapes is still to use the ND grads where possible. Getting the exposure right in the first place is always better than trying to compensate in PP.

This is about as extreme as it gets; bright sun on white marble and the deep shadows in the arcade---that is probably 13-15/stops!
