It sounds a little like you're on the edge of HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography, in terms of the problems to be solved.

Most of the current automatic approaches to rendering HRD images
down to more limited media, involve local contrast preservation
combined with global contrast compression, using various models
of how the human eye works as a guide.
