Re: Long Lake and Indian Peaks in faux HDR

It definitely has that "HDR" look - but it shows the range of data there to be had... I think in some cases where you can't get one exposure out of SPP where you get a look that is not too HDR, it may work to output a medium, high, and low exposed image and run it through an HDR program to give a more realistic tonal mapping.
