Nikon D600 dynamic range is insane (examples)

Last holidays I was on Corsica and made some really high DR photos.

Here are some examples.

Original photo:

With +3EV gradient and shadows pulling in LR:

Similar adjustments here:

This is the another example:

Exposure +3.5

Shadows, Blacks +100

Whites, Highlights -100

Clarity +40, Contrast +95:

Here the photo was made out of a cave to a bright sunny day.

Exposure +0.9 Shadows +100 Blacks +95

Here also completely dark cave vs bright sunny day.

Exposure +1.5, shadows +85, blacks +10

Even though I do have some spots on the sensor (it was already cleaned once, I will send it again soon) I do not regret that I switched from 5D mk2 to Nikon.

I mean, Canon fanboys are claiming, that there is no use of high DR. "EXPOSE PROPERLY!"- BS. But I do use it very often, and I like photos I get. So here are some "real" photos, not lab-experiments.
I don't even want to think about how much noise Canon would give me after  "Shadows +100, blacks +100".
