That's what I would do. Film and digital can't really handle the full range of exposures that the eye can see. Your basic exposure looked good, perhaps you have one where the rest is underexposed but the ballast lights are correctly exposed. It involves some masking, but you can combine the two images fairly easily, especially if you kept the same tripod postion throughout. As far as I am concerned, combining two exposures of the same scene to overcome the physical limitation of the medium is legitmate.
