And, it is the complexity of taking a wider dynamic range and squeezing it into the range that a jpg can support that causes an image to look unreal. Our eye are accustomed to the reality of a wider dynamic range. Compressing that range can easily lead to weird results because it throws things off compared to what our eyes expect.
