Having been a very bright, high contrast day I opted to stack my cards and bracketed many of my shots. In this particular case I looked at the 0EV image and felt it could hold its own. I also decided, since I had the bracketed shot anyhow, to pass them through the LRCC HDR module. I'm torn as to which one I like better. The HDR seems to favor the warm tones while the regular process looks to favor the cool tones. Opinion, thoughts, personal experiences?

My guess is the the HDR version probably has the tones that are closer to what your eye actually saw at the time. There doesn't seem to be enough detail difference to justify the additional time required to go HDR, or at least not to my eye. In the end, I think I actually like the first one better.
