I've thought about running a VM on my Mac, but I'd only need it for SNS-HDR. Not really worth the effort of setting up a virtual Windows box. I have a Windows machine running in my home office, so I just upload my images to One Drive from my Mac and then RDP into the Windows box to run them through SNS-HDR. Then I grab the resulting HDR image from One Drive back on my Mac to process further in PS. That works well with almost no delays in file handoff between the systems.

I tried getting SNS-HDR to run in Wine, but that was a no-go. Others have tried that and failed, too.

That I cannot understand. The forum is vanilla HTML code and should run on any platform. Here are the first 2 lines of HTML code.

Nice "painterly" image. But isn't this the thread for NATURAL looking HDR? ?

Well, it's supposed to look like a naturally done sketch. ;-)a

OK, I got lazy since I don't post here much and just put it in the same thread I put my other real natural hdr images.

This is very nicely done.

Good one.

I still blend "by hand" myself in Photoshop, either using luminosity masks or just manually. Don't usually like the results from Photoshop's HDR function (likely because I don't use it properly) and am still on LR 4.4 (pre-HDR). Tried Photomatix a few years ago and didn't like the result (again, probably because I didn't know how to use it). Haven't tried anything else since manual blending has been working for me so far.

Getting detail in the reflections and shadow areas resulted in the sunlit boat tops being completely blown out. So had to do HDR in order to keep details and colours.
5 exposures: 30sec, 15sec, 8sec, 4sec, 2sec

Pretty standard use of HDR -- needed to get detail in the rock and long enough exposure to get interesting water shapes, but had to retain the sky.
3 exposures: 2.5sec, 1.3sec, 0.6sec

The sunlit area of the sky required a fast shutter to keep it from blowing out. But I needed longer exposures for the clouds and to show some movement in the gentle waves.

Used an HDR for this to keep the brighter buildings from getting blown out.

Outstanding! I love this type of landscape....some dream of sandy beaches and palm trees. I dream of exactly what you captured.
