An image to show what I meant by wider dynamic range. Using my old 550D, the whiter parts and yellow leaves would have been over exposed, but with 6D, I'm able to not just have it within range, but greater manipulation in CS6 too.

Nice image and processing!
Thank you! I guess this image would show somewhat of what I was talking about: detail retention and a certain sharpness that just can't be explained! (I hope ;D)

Good image!

Now I do see 'halos' on contrast area borders.

Sorry, are you sure that these are not CA and JPEG artifacts? (Do you shoot in JPEG with high compression?)

Nope. Only RAW. That could be a raise too much of shadow though.   :P

Then: could it be some 'over-sharpening' in post-processing + JPEG compression you use when re-saving image for posting on forum?

I just tried to check my 6D images that may have areas prone to JPEG artifacts and halos and saw none...

Here is a sample of simple 'walk under the tree, point camera up and shoot' scene. It's out-of-camera JPEG, no extra processing at all. No halos (just unsharp corners of 17-40 at f/4).

Ooops! It looks like the forum engine efficiently re-compress the image and kills things "no one" needs (like ICC profiles). I think I'd bttere post is as a linked image:

I didn't actually raise sharpness, so it's interesting. I might have to check again what's going on. It might be due to the difference in converting RAW to JPEG though. I will have to research on this more...
