I use Photomatix too, the version 5 is a gem for aligning handheld shots. It has both natural and creative presets, it's sometimes hard to do not go berserk though :D

I must ask...what programs are everyone using for the "natural" looking HDR?

I use MarScaper HDR (external link) specifically designed for Mac and natural HDR. I made this software to fit my own needs.

Thanks guys. I have photomatix 5 and that's it.

Reiep - Where are the "natural and creative" presets in pm5? I haven't found those yet....

Photomatrix allows you to choose from one of 3 HDR algorithms: Compression, Fusion and Tonemapping.

Normally, on the right side of the processing screen, there are a series of tiles that, when selected, will display what the final result will look like if you use choose that that algorithm with those preset settings (e.g., "natural and creative"). Flipping through those tiles, and choosing the best 'canned' result is normally my starting point; I begin tuning from there.

The really cool thing about Photomatrix though, is the aligning and ghosting capabilities.
I shoot probably 80% of my HDR shots handheld in AV/AEB mode; they are typically aligned pretty close, but not perfectly: photomatrix almost always can handle that and align them perfectly.

For something in the frame that is moving, the ghosting feature allows you to pick the subject from one of the component shots and still manages to blend it in beautifully.

I use the Merge to 32-bit HDR plugin for LR, downloaded from Photomatix. They say it it all happens in LR and never hits Photomatix. Then I use the normal LR tools to process.

Michael Frye recommends LR Infuse which seems very similar.

Here is a reworking of some previous image sets, using MarScaperHDR. Interior-exterior, bright sun with snow on the ground outside. MarScaper is a pleasure to work with, it is fast and versatile, creating a great base image to finish in PS. Nice work Mala!

Nice shot. Just a little bit of halo around the right side of the roof which is barely noticeable here but is more visible if you look at it in Flickr. I really like it. You did a great job. What software did you use ? Where was it taken?

Outstanding!
