 Thanks again for the overgenerous comments. I have been slow to reply as I am presently on a cycling holiday in the Alps and am too mean to pay for internet access. Will post some images when I get home including a few high contrast sunsets that could give me problems rendering naturally. The view was stunning but I often find that trying to stuff 20 stops of dynamic range into 8 stops often leads to an unnatural looking end result, here's hoping. Ken

HDR is your friend... I agree that some form of HDR capture is needed when life will not fit into the available dynamic range of the equipment bing used. I was alluding to the difficulty of then compressing the dynamic range captured down to 8 bits for screen, something like 6 bits for Baryta printing and probably less than 5 bits for Matt printing and still make the image believable, interesting and dynamic whilst avoiding the colour shifts and other artifacts that can occur.
