That is awesome! I had no idea! Very nice to know!
I gotta say, the bracketing function was a hidden gem that I had no idea we had until I stumbled on something about it in another thread.
For years I've used this type of process regarding shooting and processing real estate photos.
It's super easy, the only tricky part is composure - the rest is all software and knowing what to edit, etc.
The software I use (this is probably worthy of a post in and of itself) is HDRSoft's Photomatrix Pro to do an Exposure Fusion blend. Sorry if it's not ok to link to outside vendors.
I've put together a preset (download link) I use for coming up with a very natural looking blend.
Then I throw it into Photoshop and tweak from there. For shots where the sky and ground are vastly different, still, I'll cut the sky out using the quick selection tool and darken it a bit and brighten the ground. Then I'll add some contrast and sharpness independently.
