Checkpoint 7 - Please Add Toner

In this checkpoint, we implemented both Reinhard and Ward tone reproduction.
Here are our Ward outputs:

As is common with Ward Tone reproduction, at higher brightness levels the scene becomes washed-out.
Next are out Reinhard outputs. 1 nit:

...1000 nits:

...10000 nits?:

You can see why the Reinhard operator is notoriously dark - our scene isn't visible until until 10000 nits.
