    Hi,

    I think HDR could well be the right direction to go in. You don't always need to buy an HDR camera, you might be able to set up auto-bracketing on your camera and generate your own HDRs. You should then be able to tone-map back to 8 bit images with great detail in both the light and dark parts.

    Yes, HDR seem to solve the issue. But it did take a lot of time combining the images in Photoshop to make HDR, so that's something to look into if it can be done faster if I am doing this more often.

    Hi,

    That is a really excellent result. We already have built in tone mapping. Would you like me to make a feature request for auto generating HDRs from multiple exposures?
