Challenge #3

Here are the left and right zip files. Right click and save as. For this challenge there are five images in each set spaced 1.5 EV apart for a total of 3 EV over and 3 EV under exposed. They were taken with a Pentax K10D and Pentax DA*16-50 lens set at 16mm on a slide bar and the files are native Pentax Raw format (PEF). The challenge here is to get the sky to come out without getting halos around the buildings. This image won the best of show in the 2008 NSA on-site digital image competition.
