Our photography club had an HDR shoot & learn session. We spent about 30-45 minutes photographing scenes around the Spartan Photo Store, then headed back to the store for a couple of demonstrations on processing the images. These are the shots that I liked. I tried a couple of different HDR applications as well as the Topaz Adjust plug-in for Lightroom & Photoshop. While Topaz Adjust does not create true HDR images, it can simulate some of the more common styles that are seen in HDR imagery. Plus, it is just a fun little plug-in to play around with sometimes.
These shots illustrate some of the differences you can get using Photomatix, HDR Expose, Topaz Adjust and normal Lightroom processing techniques.
