Agreed. When you are getting ready to take a landscape shot, ask yourself "Am I capturing the entire or close to the entire dynamic range with just one shot? Do I really need bracketed shots here?" Ifyou decide to bracket, and convert to hdr, be very carefulmduring the pp to avoid dark, unnatural areas of the sky, avoid halos around mountain ridges, tree lines, clouds etc. If you look at your first image, you'll see that you got quite a bit of halos and other stranges things that really shouldnt be there. Experiment with hdr, dont over do / over-process, but try to just increase the DR. Have fun...
