Could not agree more. At the risk of negating Neuro's excellent response, technically tonemapping is a function of HDR, while blending exposures utilizes a different approach. Both lend themselves to loosening up that dynamic range through the use of multiple exposures.
BTW, is it common to use tilt shifts for landscapes?
True...I just lumped them together practically, since the software packages that support it almost universally offer both options.
A TS-E is great for landscapes - the tilt capability allows you to achieve a very deep DoF without needing an exceptionally narrow aperture.
+1. Sometimes I wish it had 2 shifts though -- one to fix converging verticals and one for panos.
