I recently purchased LR5, and was wondering how adjusting "highlights", "whites", "blacks", and "shadows", "vibrance", and so on, compared to tonemapping or fusing in Photomatix. Here is a picture done all three ways (the tonemapped and fused images were the result of three exposures).
I've been staring at these too long and need fresh, objective eyes to help me out. Thoughts? Highlights, shadows, clouds, hue of the sky and stone, bleeding... anything.
