Any suggestions for maintaining detail with darker parts of the photo and toning down brighter part?

That's not correct. Not every scene requires the full dynamic range of the human eye. Not every scene exceeds the camera's dynamic range. I don't do exposure blending very often.

Please don't purposefully change the context of what you are quoting by selectively clipping statements.

In the out-of-context quote you clipped you left out what the quote you used was referring to which is a scene that exceeds the camera's dynamic range.

This is the entire statement.

Taking for example A landscape with a bright sky and a canyon in shadows, that scene is typically going to exceed the dynamic range of a typical camera sensor. (a lot of the word 'typical' in there ) So if you are metering with emphasis on the sky(highlights) you will not have data in the shadows, metering with emphasis on the canyon(shadows), you blow the sky out. No exposure is going to be correct and capture all the data.

You're better than that, make your point legitimately please.
