Filter mode for bracketed photo series (HDR)?

Thanks for a great culling application. For my landscape photography I rely a lot on bracketed photos (HDR) where the camera takes a series of three or five photos in a burst with one underexposed, one "normal" exposure and one overexposed in order to capture highlights and shadows. I use Affinity Photo later to merge the photos into one HDR photo. However, culling these shoots is a real pain as there are always three (or five) identical photos in the grid, where only one of them are normally exposed and suitable for comparing with the next normally exposed photo in the next bracketed photo series. I would love to be able to filter these type of shoots in order to more quickly compare the normally exposed photos for each bracketed series, so I can choose which series to go forward with. Perhaps it is possible to filter based on image timestamp and exposure compensation together, or to analyze the scene so that OptiCull understands these are bracketed photos of the same scene and only show the normally exposed one? I am not sure, but this would be extremely useful. Thanks again!

So, besides faces...

This could be controversial but here goes. Culling software (Aftershoot, OptiCull, etc.) all focus on AI models based on the only belief that culling is about faces...in focus, smiling, eyes open, etc. There are a lot of photographers who shoot other subjects like wildlife, landscapes, etc. Here's the ask...are there other AI models to allow culling of these different genre? Aftershoot offers about six or so but they are all people-focused events (wedding, etc.). Can't find anything but face stuff in Narrative Select. I've not found any other culling software that provides options for "what" to cull around (meaning type of photos in the session).So here's an opportunity to leap-frog the others with the ability to choose the type of culling the user wants to run (which of course uses the appropriate AI engine).Thanks for considering this.
