Default First attempt at HDR

As suggested, I started trying HDR. Downloaded some programs and used Dynamic for this...I seem to like this program the best so far. I took a RAW of a photo I shot this summer...made 3 copies and changed the EV on 2...giving me -2 0 +2. Suggestions on what to do different to make it better is appreciated.

I like the way the orange glow came out and the little strands of dispersed clouds.

I use DPHDR, too. I like Photomatix's flavor a lot, too, but I find it very distinctive as to be easier to tell it's done with it. And I agree with Walter S -- DPHDR is more powerful because it offers a lot more features.

However, I'd say that I think Photomatix's algorithms are better at handling overexposure. I sometimes get blownout skies with DPHDR. (Not in your case with this photo.) Photomatix seems to "know" when an overexposure will happen and so implements an effective way (replacing ugly noise with more pleasing dots, it looks like) of preventing it.
