Earlier you were claiming that C1 had greater DR and was superior on high contrast images. I showed that to be false and now you are claiming it has better tonal qualities to its shadow recovery. I disagree.

The C1 example looks muddy and drab. It cannot do nearly as well with recovering the sky as LR4. The aesthetics of the sky are far superior in LR4. The tree trunk has richer tones.

Now lets look at the mid-tones. They are dead in the C1 example. It seems to have crushed them all together into one tone.

Look at the distant trees. They have nice separation in LR4. They are mushed together in in C1 to almost a silhouette.

I'd like to figure out how to get more aesthetically pleasing results when dealing with high dynamic range images, but I cannot find a way. I posted my settings. Tell me how to do it better. Don't give me theoretical bafflegab.
