I read somewhere on the web that the Nikon D800E dynamic range was so great, that shooting HDR (blending multiple images together to increase tonal range) was unnecessary. This image was one image but edited in HDR Efex 2 so that I could use their tonal range processor. I believe I have to agree that the need for HDR to get such a large tonal range is probably not needed?
P.S. I posted the original picture (click thumbnail). Also, I posted a previous picture of the front of this fountain here.
