    Taken with a flash and possibly not the best subject for this. It's from one image which I changed the exposure settings of with CS2 (starting with -3 going up to +3) and then fiddled with in Photomatix. Put it back in CS2 to resize and sharpen. The third image is some more minor tweaking in CS2.

    I don't usually edit my photos but thought I'd have a go at a subtle HDR.

    If anyone wants to play with the orignal image to make a mental HDR feel free.

    I think you actually did tone mapping, not HDR. HDR is with multiple exposures. Anyway, the picture looks good to me :)

    I "generated" the multiple exposures then did tone maping on the HDR. It's not a proper one, but is - if that makes sense. Tone mapping was done after.

    Yea, I understand what you meant, but I'm fairly certain that true HDR is 3 exposures taken from your camera. You can't create information in the picture that never existed. You can however, play with tone mapping and create some nice results. There are a few threads floating around about the subject in this forum.
