ACR editing and bracketed shots.

HI,

I have a number of photos where I have tried bracketing shots - as described in Brian's post below.  So I end up with three photos that in theory should be combined in to one that will give a better result for a, e.g., bright sky and dark foreground.

My question is: how would you recommend these fit into the ACR process? Would you combine them first and then do the RAW edits on the merged image or process each one individually and edit them concnertrating on getting either the 'bright' or 'dark' areas right?  

I'm assuming that you bracket in the firstplace because one image can't cover the range you want.

Any pearls?

Are you sure it can't?  Have you checked what you took?  It's pretty rare.

Remember that bracketing then combining is usually done by people who don't know how to process their raw files accurately.  You are not one of those people.
