Thank you for your kind words, Edufloyd!

No, I don't do RAW, just ordinary Jpeg's. I ususally shoot 5 Brackets with 0,7EV in between them, that gives me values of -1.5EV to 0EV to + 1.5 EV. When...

Trees with their top on:

I'm sorry about the tree, maggo85 - but as I said. It's easy to say: 'I should have seen this and that' - when one is sitting comfortable in a warm house.
