A question for all....I've typically held ISO and Aperture constant when bracketing for HDR, and using Shutter Speed as my variable for the bracketed shots.  I just bought a 6D and have been stunned by the high ISO performance.  It makes me wonder if I could handhold more often to bracket by allowing ISO to be the variable, with Shutter Speed and Aperture fixed.  I think I get clean shots with the 6D up to 12800 in many cases, which allows a lot of stops to bracket. 

Has anyone tried HDR with ISO as the variable?

No one has tried this?

not sure why you would hold shutter constant and only vary ISO (lots of noise).  I often use a combination though so I can do the bracket handheld without blurring on the longer exposure shots.  Just use aperture priority and auto ISO, but limit iso to 800 or so.

Sometimes you can get by without a reverse grad;)

A heard of buffalo I shot last summer in Wind Cave national park, SD.

Not sure if anyone has posted this yet but I had to share.  Check out the difference in dynamic range from the 5D mk3 with canon firmware output (i-frame):

Canon 5D Mark III i-frame video test

Now here is the same scene shot with magic lantern firmware using the new 14 bit RAW output.  He is able to completely recover all the shadows and highlights.  Crazy.

You'd probably need a lot of 1000x CF cards to hold all that data though.

A photo of a waterfall I did a year or so ago. 

It's NOT supposed to be:

Blown out (the highlights at the top are just foggy mist, so there was no more detail than what I show)
over exposed
over saturated

(to each his own I suppose)

Nice shots, love the aperture stars. 

A recent one of mine where I was trying to have the snow itself as the main subject of the composition by playing with depth of field and focus point.  Handheld @ f1.2

Shot this a few years back when I was still on Pentax gear.  I think it was a 5 shot bracket with 2 ev steps per shot at 450mm stopped way down.

I know you went with the 85 1.8, but it is fun posting these shots anyway.  Another one I took with the baby bokeh machine, 50L

Possibly as Anrzej Dragan might have edited it?  Going more for drama and feeling, and less for color accuracy ect as many of the others are squabbling over above...

50 1.2L 

Check how creamy the bokeh is in the busy grass and contrasty tree branches on the shot below.  You can't beat that (maybe the 85 1.2L II could, but the working distance sucks for babies)...

Also, my girlfriends nephew was sick of the photo shoot, so he decided to wait for the next bus...

There was a blizzard the other night, and even though I was tired from a night out on the town, the snow in the lights was so pretty that I had to walk around the block.  I wanted to try and get a very shallow DOF and have the snow be my in-focus subject.

one I took of my girlfriends nephew a few weeks ago...

As an aside, you can use bokeh or panorama stitching to get a MF DOF effect and resolution.  It is often referred to as the Brenzier method (named after the wedding photog that made it famous).  Using this has its drawbacks, but it also has the advantage of getting images that wouldn't even be possible with any MF cameras.  There is a calculator where you input you camera and lens setup and how many images you did in your stitch and it will tell you what imaginary camera and lens you would have needed to actually get something similar in real life (some of my image have come to the equivalent of a non existent f0.7 lens). 

Here is Ryan Brenzier's webpage with more examples.  His are mostly wedding and engagement stuff, but you can also use it for landscape as well.

Here is a great example of how this technique can be used in landscape photography (love this shot):

Here is a crappy attempt I did for a test a couple months ago (which reminds me, I should go outside right now and enjoy the equipment I already own):
