For the OP, and others, speaking of indoor windows shots and the dynamic range of the K5 sensor vs Canon cameras, not to mention the different (and horrible) noise patterns that are distinctive to Canon...

Nikon DX vs Canon APS-C: Dynamic Range |

This is really useful - it's a set of three Youtube videos which

I also found it a useful tutorial on dynamic range and using Lightroom to recover shadows and highlights. I think everything he notes about the Nikon D5100 is easily applicable to the K5, given they share the same sensor. If anything, the K5 has even more DR headroom than the D5100.

And yes, it includes two indoor shots of windows as the example subject, but no human faces.
Thanks for the link, rawr. That's some great stuff.
