"...but I would never take a sky from one photo and substitute it for another."

Both slide film and most digital cameras have far less dynamic range than does print film.

If I am visiting the Taj Mahal and find a beautiful sky but the Taj backlit what do I do? I can expose for the sky and loose the Taj in the shadows or expose for the Taj and produce a 'washed out' sky.

Or I can take two seperate photos, one exposed to maximize each seperate element and then combine the 'best of both' later.

Have I done something that violates the rule?

Or have I used the available technology to produce the best picture? (I could have done the job in one shot with a huge reflector....)
