out of the three programs i have photomatix is far superior in allignment terms

@ hiro thanks

. Do you think hdr can be aplied to p&s (using bracketing option) shots or it's not worth and to get the best of it you really need a dslr?
. Another question: is there some free hdr software to try?
You can get good results from p&s cameras. I have a Canon SD1100 using CHDK and it works well. I use the self timer to trigger the shots to avoid shake. It's possible to create HDR time-lapse videos as well. I use IrfanView (free) to batch process and rename the files before sending them to Photomatix.

You did a great job on this tutorial Simple! Mine may seem a late feedback as I haven't posted for a relatively long time Hey, I still wonder how you managed to attain a medieval architecture from a beach scene though (as you also pointed out)
As for hdr, I believe the more one is aware of matters of exposure the more one is likely to improve one's hdr output since the destiny of the output depends on the success of the middle shot (with 0 ev). Here's a simulator which can make things more tangible for starters. http://www.kamerasimulator.se/eng/?page_id=2

That simulator is excellent. It actually shows noise from high ISO and depth of field by wide open aperture. Definately a great aid to anyone wanting to grasp the technical aspects of photography.
