Single RAW, in LR for -2EV (0EV), +2EV virtual brackets, across to Photomatix for HDR tone-map, then to Photoshop for some local brightness and contrast adjusts and Nik output sharpening, and then back to LR for final crop. Location is The Grot (Rydal Beck) at Rydal Hall, UK.

Yes, I had some help in that some of the water was already frozen, but HDR (meaning tone-map) is a great way to get structural detail into ice or glass shapes. If moving water is also involved then single shot RAW and virtual brackets and then tone-map is a great way to go. Nik's Color Efex Detail Extractor filter also works well to get structure in similar way. I use various combinations though layering in Photoshop.

Salisbury Cathedral, UK. That's a water font in the foreground.

ISO800, 16mm at f/4 on FF. Manual everything. Multiple handheld -2EV, 0EV, +2EV bracket triplets into Photomatix to .exr 32-bit => stitched in CS6 Photomerge => multiple passes of 32-bit through Photomatix for various flavours of tonemap. Selective layer blend those tonemaps in CS6, with another stamped layer through Nik Color Efex Detail Extractor mainly to structure-up the font reflections. Cloning and comping here there and everywhere to eradicate other visitors, notice boards, barriers, extend canvas, etc.. Various local adjustment layers to selectively fiddle with the saturation, lighting, and contrast. Once all that was done, back into Lightroom for yet more global toning, colour-temp, and crop.
