D800 Dynamic range pulling examples (Scotland Landscape Photography)

I was out shooting tonight with the D800 in the west coast of Scotland. Just thought some might light to see the "pulling power" of the D800.

First shot, 2 stops underexposed to protect highlights (bar disc of sun) before pulling:

2nd shot, after pulling and contrast added (could have pulled alot more but looked too "fake" to my eye):

Finally, 5 bracketed shots and combined in photomatix:

All shots, tripod, mirror up, manual focus, processed in Lightroom 4. I have kept most of the shots bar the last one "cool" ie mildly blue tinged as it literally looked like this at the scene. Just wanted to point that out incase any canon trolls show up.

Oh and this one, totally irrelevant but a "hi" from Scotland:
