Very good job, and interesting comparisons. I've had more trouble than either of these with the typical HDR "halos" between sky and trees than what you have here (when using strong HDR) - guess the trick is not to have really dark trees against a blue sky. It also shows that while very useful (the results with the highlights are really significant), it does have a limit - your black tombstone in front is still pretty black). Of course, to get that you'd need a huge range of photos to make that work (doable, but it could be frustrating).

In any case, you've shown that the in-camera HDR function is quite useable and capable of handling some really tough situations.

Here is the 24mm shot in HDR standard that looks to match the 10mm Church brightness in HDR strong mode.
