    I have read about every post on HDR and still need to ask, again. What is the current state of the art software for HDR. I am really looking for a plugin for PS-CS that is functional and affordable. My intension is not to create the Tim Burton style images I see from time to time, but a good wide range image with great shadow detail and bold highlights without blowing out anything. Something that real film lovers would drool over. Stunning realistic images to be proud of. I know it can be done, but with what and at what cost?

    Also, I often hand hold and bracket. In a 10 MP image I may miss alignment by 80-100 pixels, I am looking for something that can handle that much error in my technique.

    TIA, John.

    There is no great plug-in for PS. Buy photomatix... it has the align images and anti-ghosting options your looking for. its under $100.00 Tripod is still best for HDR by far tho.
