Great post David! It is amazing what can be done with Handheld HDR with the power of Photomatix. Beautiful shot in a beautiful land.
The only thing I would suggest, as you noted in your piece, was there was no need to shoot at f16, since you had no foreground subject and most likely you were focused at infinity.
You could have shot at f4 on your 70mm lens and provided that you were focused at least 134' away (your hyperfocal distance) you would have had infinite DOF. This would have either allowed faster shutter speeds or at least lowering your ISO below 800. Although the D700 has great ISO noise handling
Great post, Great use of HDR
