Here are a few Screen shots of an HDR image being created in Photomatix pro 4.2 (32-bit). This is a fine program for this type of photography. I have used others and this is my favorite.

Back when I first started doing HDR photography I went out of control with my processing. Like most people new to it I pushed the limits. I really liked was I was doing yet I didn’t think it looked right. I seemed to “go with the flow”. After all, most everyone else had pics like that. I thought that was how it should look. I don’t like t see my old images but that’s a lesson I guess. Seeing how far you’ve come over the years.
I’ll show a screen shot of this old pickup in Photomatix before the processing and one when the processing is complete in Photomatix Pro 4.2. A third image is my final version after some tinkering in PS CS6.
