anyone into HDR?

here's why i ask...i've been dabbling with photomatix, and i've hit a stumbling block (of course)...im such a noob with lightroom, i havent quite mastered the whole workflow process, so, in effect, im kind of in-efficient and disorganized.

but here goes...

when i take a picture, i insert the SD card into my 'puter, and "copy as DNG" into a subfolder for whatever set it is to be. from there however, how could i make edits to the pictures, and then send those pictures to a different program such as photomatix? say i import 3 bracketed photo's to lightroom...would the process look like this?

import into lightroom, make edits, export full quality, import into photomatix, save, import into lightroom for cataloging? that seems like a lot of steps...?

why im asking is because noise sucks, and so does photomatix's noise reduction. i'd rather use lightrooms noise reduction as a first step, then merge and tone map. any insight? i wish i could grasp lightroom beyond just doing basic editing stuff...when it comes to cataloging and organizing, im not very good at it...lol.

I typically just toss whatever images into photomatix and then do the editing afterwards on one final image. It doesn't really make sense in my mind to edit 3 (or however many) photos when I could just edit one. If you're just denoising, it might not be a problem, but I would think that you could start running into some ghosting and other problems if you start playing around with much more. Also, since photomatix can work with RAW files, you will have a little more room to work with if you run photomatix first instead of editing and converting to jpgs, etc.

I have the NR on photomatix turned off since it is indeed pretty terrible. If you're working with one extreme photo that introduces a lot of noise, I'll either sometimes remove it from the set or just crank up the NR in Topaz or whatever NR software you have.

So do you think the noise issues I'm experiencing are due to the t3i? The underexposed image contains considerably more noise than the other two images. And I'm using Lightroom for noise reduction and final editing.

I have NR turned off in-camera...should I turn it on? Not sure if it works in RAW...

Good, replaced some exterior stairs this week, did 95% of the stairs myself, cut stringers, drilled anchor bolt holes into concrete, leveled everything out. Then I got tired and hired someone to do the finish work. lol... those finish screws are completely aggravating. We also added LED's to the risers for night time safety. i'll take some pics.

We are also about to start a huge landscaping project. I'm telling you... i'm ready to leave photography forever and go into landscaping. They make the big bucks. Makes just about any form of photography look like scrounging for pennies.
