Oops, I had actually intended to mention that one can go more than two.

Have you, or anyone else, seen a website or document that explains why the compression process can work out well in some instances and so badly in others? Is it primarily a matter of how much range is being compressed, or does it have to do with the type of image, the way brights and darks are mixed in the frame, or what?
