Here is a blended dark and light exposure to make sure the dark areas are dark and the bright areas (the water fall) don't lose detail.

Suggestions are welcome. The 2 original images were both raw files. Here are there thumb nails followed by the result after blending, Local Contrast Enhancement, and saturation level adjustments (I did some selective color adjustments in the raw converter too):

Thanks! I took about 200+ raw photos on my trip and tried to take double exposures(one lighter and one darker) for as many as possible. So hopefully, I'll have a very nice danamic range on other shots too! I didn't do this will all the shots but many I did do double exposures. I just wish my camera had burst mode in raw so I could do a 3-fold bracket in under a second (jpeg mode) but I can't in raw. I manually have to make the adjustments.
