I saw some info online about using Enfuse LR plugin for Real Estate Photography. This (external link) is an interesting article. Not sure the investment in the e-book is necessary.

As you might gather from my query, I am wanting to master getting the windows right. I'm not new at all to HDR, but have mostly used it with landscapes.

My initial attempts are fair, occasionally good. Been using Photomatix pro; Affinity Pro; and lately using the merge in PTGUI.

Interested in your thoughts.

HDR and enfuse are OK but the best way to accomplish what you're after is to use a blending technique in Photoshop.

There are several good tutorial videos on YouTube by a photographer named Nathen Cool.

There are also some by another photographer named Rich Baum.

I've found Enfuse plug-in is better than the built-in HDR merge in Lightroom.

I am more than happy with the results that Topaz gives me with a single RAW.

Don't use HDR - at all. I blend a flash exposure with one (or sometimes more) ambient exposures. I do shoot a 7 shot, 1 stop bracket from which I get my ambient exposures and also use as a back up in the rare case where I need and automated blend. In that case I use LR Enfuse.

I don't use HDR outside either. The image here is all post. Made from a single exposure.

I runs everything through Enfuse GUI. A batch process out of Capture one and then another batch through Enfuse. I don't sweat over it just let it do its thing.

Certain shots get some work in Photoshop by layering in exposures in certain areas.
