    looks good, i like the first one.

    one trick ive found in the free version of Photomatix is after you hit tone mapping, take a screen shot. Then crop the screen shot into a picture. One way of getting around the Photomatix logos they put on the finished file. Only problem is the picture will be as big as your screen allows.

    #1 has too much going on, others are subtle. Good!

    You know the scenes you're using don't really lend themselves to HDR, imho. HDR is about range between light and dark -- and it really brings out shots that can't be properly exposed otherwise. But shots of a field on a sunny day -- not sure how much dynamic range there is

    Pics are nice. I've found that with HDR, at least in my limited use of it, it helps to make pictures just that much better. I don't tell people now that it is processed in the same way as HDR, but it seems to bring out the colors. Keep up the good work!
