Nice lighting on your daughter Chad. It really makes her the focal point of the image.
This was another attempt at a blended exposure - the sky was very nearly blown so I processed two raw with the first one stop over and the second one stop under using luminous landscape's digital blending action is worked pretty well and although the clouds look a little funky, the exposure on the subject is what I was looking for. Thanks everyone for their kind responses. I love this site :D . I have completely abandoned posting images on dpreview.

That's a nice job with the processing Chad. I haven't tried that blending action. I will often use the highlight/shadow settings to accomplish the same thing. Have you compared the result with both methods and what do your recommend?

When I have enough blocked shadows/burned highlights, that ps feature appears to do nothing to recover the burned areas and adds a lot of noise to the blocked shadow areas. The action is really easy and I will email it to you with instructions if you want to have a go at it and compare the results for yourself. At first the shadows/highlights feature was a godsend (and one of the main reasons I upgraded besides acr and 16 bit functionality), but now the feature appears to do too much damage to merit much utility (for me at least.)
