Wow, the second picture is stunning! I would frame that!
Could you elaborate on the process you took to achieve this picture?
I take 3-5 exposures usually and tonemap in dynamic photo hdr by mediachance. I've just never felt right with photomatix, I uesd it for a while but mediachance was a breath of fresh air.
I also do a little tweaking in lightoom.
Hdr is a delicate process you have to feel around until you get the finished product that you want. I think it took me a few months until I started seeing results that I liked. Definately an acquirred taste
