Doc, that's a superb image with great depth and clarity.

BTW, it's "2 alpha 2" - don't think we're at the beta stage yet!

Also, it's amazing that Sebastian is the only software write. SNS is a one man band and I take my hat off to him for what he has achieved.

I corrected which version I used, thanks for mentioning that.

Cleaning up my library. This was originally processed from a single exposure, though I had bracketed the shot (5 exposures). So, I decided to re-process it using the brackets in Oloneo PhotoEngine:

The images of late are remarkable. I'll have to up my game and knowledge before I darken this thread's door again.

MM, as a long-time HDR shooter, I would make the following comments.

1. With IS lenses and top notch image alignment algorithms now used within HDR software, a tripod is no longer essential. I never use one though I admit that theoretically my images would be better if I did. N.B. The only software that I know of that does not align images well is Machinery HDR. That's a pity as in all other respects it is excellent.

2. Deghosting moving people, vehicles or foliage has always been a challenge for those who write the software. I would put the HDR apps in this order:
(a) Photomatix has 2 methods and is undoubtedly the best.
(b) EasyHDR, nil Efex HDR and Lightroom are all good.
(c) Machinery HDR and SNS-HDR are both poor.

3. (c) above is bad news for me as SNSS-HDR is my favoured processor. It yields the truest colour IMO and I use it whenever I can.

4. All HDR apps convert your bracketed sets to 32-bit before they do any tonemapping but, as far as I am aware, only EasyHDR and Photomatix are capable of saving them

SNS-HDR 1.42 (the current full version) and SNS-HDR 2 alpha 3 - together with Photomatix and EasyHDR - will all accept 32-bit EXR or HDR amalgamations and then tonemap them.

5. So, whenever deghosting is required, this is my workflow.
(a) Deghost in Photomatix or EasyHDR and save the intermediate 32-bit image.
(b) Tonemap the 32-bit file with SNS-HDR.
(c) Save as a TIF and post process with Photoshop.

You may be interested in these tests which I have carried out in anothe place.
