Were you compositing the 3 different files or just picked one and ran with it in RAW? Did you have to lots of localized adjustments or is this mostly global shifts? Any plug-ins or just using ACR?
I think I'd feel much better about the shots if I was able to mimic your technique– any insights you could share (or even a layered .PSD I could dissect?)
I did a lot of white balance in acr globally and localized with the adjustment brush including bringing down the over blown area above the painting with the gradient tool.
I also combined the 3 exposures into Merge To HDR Pro in the Bridge to make a 32 bit tiff which I put back into acr to do more fine tuning.
