I see the problem, your raw converter isn't in english!
Dang, wondered what I was doing wrong.........so it doesn't work then on English photos?
Yeah, this is probably the spot where a grad ND is the only thing that will really get the shot cleanly. You can look into luminance masks if you have Photoshop, as they would help you recover some highlights if they are blown out. You're definitely looking at combining multiple exposures though
Thats a nice technique, I guess its also great for avoiding ghosting created by bracketed shots.
I tried it on another shot and it worked pretty well, I couldn't get the Blur part to work though. Plus the PS action link doesn't work for me at the moment.
Thats a great tip, thanks.
