I don’t usually do that many HDR pictures and have therefore not bothered to invest in HDR applications such as Photomatix. There is a HDR function in Photoshop but I have never managed to work it to achieve the effect that I want. Instead, I prefer to merge bracketed shots layer-by-layer manually by hand in Photoshop. The above shot was taken at Kintamani in Bali and is composed of 3 separate (and bracketed) pictures. The HDR-look is not everybody’s cup of tea… I am not sure if the above image agrees with you 😛
