Having just purchased a 6D and being disappointed with the in-camera "HDR" I hoped that this thread would give me inspiration and maybe a few suggestions. Sorry, but it doesn't. The only images of a scene with a truly high dynamic range are by Rienz. The rest are of what I would call normal dynamic range where some judicious pulling and pushing could have saved the highlights and put detail into the shadows. Many of the posted images are flat and meh.
I have yet to process a 6D RAW file that is not superior to the in-camera HDR taken at the same time. Post-processed HDR using RAW files in Lightroom 6 is a different matter - this works very well and without the "HDR-look" - see attached file. Silly that the 6D does not save the original files, just the HDR jpeg.
Of course the in-camera HDR can be done in the field, but I rarely post anything without at least cropping and leveling.
