    Messing with RAW format (or the RAF flavour of it, proprietary to Fuji).

    Here I used Adobe's DNG and CameraRaw to produce in Photoshop three separate 'exposures' (JPG files with different levels and curve shapes), then tonemapped in Dynamic Photo with the 'traditional' multi-exposure workflow.

    Funnily, this version looks softer up to medium size, with the other one appearing 'sharper' - the effect of artificial variable-radius contrast in hard tonemapping. In larger sizes, though, that 'sharper' image suffers from significant loss of detail, while this 'blurred' version has a lot more to see on close inspection:)

      Welcome to the RAW format..Good work done. I really like the sharpness and the clear details.
      And very good details even on the largest size. Impressive
