The images below are of the same subject but vastly different image capture techniques were used.
The image above was captured as bracketed photos -2 0 +2 EV then post-processed with Photomatix Pro.
The next Image below was a single 20-Second exposure while painting the scene with a pocket flashlight.
I like both the images but prefer the one below.
It is definitely a more accurate representation to what was actually seen by my eyes. Also I like the fact that I decided to shoot this one in portrait format which tells the story much better of an old Florida General Store.
