After DNG conversion, increased Blacks, countered with Fill Light, then adjusted Recovery and Brightness. Had to use "Quick Mask" to capture the dark area and pull out the detail in the darkest area.

I predict 5.25. I'm optimistic.

This came from a hike in Yosemite NP, from Tuolomne Meadows to Glen Aulin. This is the "White Cascade".

The highlights look great, the shadows have an odd color cast. Perhaps a wee bit saturated in the shadows. It's a neat shot overall.
