Re: HDR often not necessary?

In previous years I often captured 3-5 images at different exposures to merge them to HDR later. Mostly, this is to avoid blown out highlights in the bright overcast sky. My camera is an Olympus E-M10 Mark II.

Lately when looking at the result again and trying to achieve the same result by developing a single image of these sets, it works remarkably well to my surprise. Especially with Lightroom luminance filters or some clever masking I'm able to do things I didn't think were possible with just one image.

This has been my experience as well.
