I am in one of those moods where I think everyone is right ...

There is a big range between a bit of shadows adjustment and full-blown HDR to the max. I think in this case Chris hasn't gone very far beyond shadows adjustment, if he has gone at all beyond. I am a fan of using tone mapping judiciously, in that I don't care about the technique, I just like to see shots processed exactly to my personal tastes. Which is what everyone should do. Right? Right?

Layers are always good, I need to be less lazy and use them more often.
