I decided to play with an HDR software, hdrsoft.com. It merges bracketed photos to get detail in otherwise high contrast images. You take 3 photos (on a tripod) and vary the exposure values high, mid, and low. Drag and drop them in the software and play around with effects. Here's a shot from the property during a full moon sunrise last week. Normally the foreground is too dark and the moon too light. The merged photo brings both into play. I think it works nicely and the software is real easy to use.
