Hi Francesco, you might say "jpg false details" but what do we do in Photoshop when we brighten a jpg image? Exactly the same! You get noise if you go on with recovering details and of course you can denoise the image accompanied with a loss in sharpness and detail. Jozsef

I am not sure if I have understood correctly: in the second stage you are basically recovering "jpg false details", it can't be different? The resulting effect is great, I only wonder if you can apply some denoising (thus simulating jpg lossy compression) and then continue recovering. Geeky explanations appreciated.

Canon 5D MKII + 17-40 4L. I didn't use an ND filter and as far as I remember and not even a polarizer (it is useless against the sun).

I took this shot last spring. This is not an HDR image! To reach this quality and DR I used a two-stage processing in Lightroom. This means that I push the raw to the limits in Lightroom by raising the shadows until I get noise in the shadows. Then I render a higher quality .jpg and re-import this .jpg into Lightroom. Now I can push the shadows even more and I get more details. There is no manipulation or any Photoshop technique on this image. I rotated the original image in Lightroom to make it horizontal and I removed the unwanted lens-flare in Photoshop. You have to expose to the right, and use the two-stage post-processing in Lightrrom, that's all.
I've kept the raw and the processed image on my harddrive. I rendered a normal .jpg now for the contest without setting anything.
