Default CS5 and HDR Pro

The HDR Pro contained in the new version of Photoshop is pretty impressive. I've been using Photomatrix Pro as a stand-alone program and was anxious to see what CS5 could do. Here is the middle shot of the dashboard of a 1949 Chrysler

Another example is this 1930 Ford convertible. Here is the middle image of a 3 shot series.

I tweaked your middle exposure with cheapo Photoshop Elements 8 (Shadows, Highlights, etc.) . Its a good shot and there's enough info in it.

ordo your edit adds a lot of noise and ruins the detail

Yep. I see the noise today that i didn't yesterday. But not the 'ruined' detail. Anyway, it was a super quick edit. I mean: just playing around with Shadows-Highlights can bring a pretty similar hdr effect. Wow... I guess i'm having a retro Chato's itch.
