    After countless hours of trying to "tone map" in CS2, which was a complete failure, I decided to give Photomatixs' plugin for PS free trial a try. And wow. Way better results, way better. I still am amazed how it takes one shot and you can tweak it and tone map it through the plug in. I guess it's "Psuedo HDR", but still amazing. Here you go. Way easier and more functional than the merge to HDR. It may be me using it wrong, but I'm in favor of the plugin over the merge to HDR through PS. At least for now until I learn how to tone map using the merge to hdr feature.[​IMG]

    Looks really nice, a little on the Crayola side but not bad.

    Yea, I think I used too much "strength", now I gotta learn what makes a good HDR and what doesn't. I'm assuming where there's more shadows than highlights, or where details are being lots in shadow?
