Luma mask for HDR footage

Was watching a color correction demo on a high end system used to combine and correct HDR footage from a RED camera.
I figure creating a luma mask(a mask which masks out a certain tonal range of an image) MUST be fairly easy to do in After Effects.
Bottom layer correctly exposed but highlites blown out
Toplayer underexposed to protect highlites
How to mask the top layer so ONLY the highlites are revealed?
also 2 layers
Bottom layer normal exposed
Top layer some effect applied but layer blend mode is ADD which blows out the highlites
How to mask the top layer so ONLY the highlites are masked?
