Number four looks absolutely stunning on my screen - the sky doesn't look blown out at all!

Excellent work.

It doesn't have much sky contrast due to the crappy gamma curve of APX 100, although it might work well on dcm's white walls. :P

For perfect results, I personally save to EXR using linear TM and low gain (so that the sky is not clamped), then convert to 16-bit TIFF, then open it in DxO for applying camera & film profiles, as well as denoising & improving shadows/highlights range. That's a bit of work, and DxO is not really meant for this, but its film profiles are the best I've ever seen. If it accepted EXR input, this would be good...
I have heard that DxO FilmPack is also a photoshop plugin, maybe this would be worth a try.

This is not the main reason why I purchased DxO, the absolutely awesome DSLR picture enhancement from RAW being the main reason.

I have to agree that number 4 looks absolutely stunning.

So this is just some stupid nitpicking:
- the left chimney looks a little detached from the roof
- the base of the fence in the foreground could use some bevel, and the tops of the fencing posts too. Perhaps they could even get some kind of cover?

so with a less-than-perfect-fence: BAM!

I do not know it yet or not finish. But considering all of what was said above, I am now here's the result. The camera has settings based on the rules of "Sunny f/16". Agfapan-apx 400sCD(CD), F-stop=16, exposure=125, ISO=400.
But I have to admit that most of the camera profiels are pushing the contrast and tint quite strong. Some further Tonemapping controls inside Indigo would be very welcome!
We really need this feature!

regards...

1. This is the main Images. Increase value of the sky or EV for good quality shadows.

2. Decrease the EV or value of the sky.

3. Combine the first and second images in PS by the alpha channel. Then post work in Light Room.

I'm pretty confident that you could find the relevant request thread to bump from the dedicated sub-forum. image manipulation control contrast

Definitely wonderful!
I have to make some outdoor shots in short time: be sure you will be one of my references!

A great update!

Now you could start to play with some postwork in PS or whatever.
I hope you don't mind, here a quick (extreme) example how much you can alter the look, I used CameraBag 2 for that:

Amazing render indeed man! How long did it take you to make such a detailed scene like this oO?

Even though this render is pretty much perfect I'd have a nitpick suggestion for it, as problems like this stick out on an otherwise flawless render.

The reflective wood on the roof's left side is shining brightly because I assume you haven't got trees outside the camera's FOV so they reflect empty HDR or physical sky in a glossy fashion.

It's quite an impressive scene, beyond all the details I like also how it's opening to a depth in the right hand.
