I would suspect that the E-1 does not have the dynamic range to do one shot. 
Not sure what the cost of combining handheld images. The other question is 
F-stop for that DOF and diffraction issues.

Not being a Lightroom person, to me, the ease of creating luminosity masks in 
Photoshop to help control the combining would be my preferred way to go.

Nice shot though.
