I went on a photo walk downtown last week and came across some vacation rentals. I peeped inside this one rental as it had a mexican/spanish décor that I love. Colors were very vibrant and
I thought there was great DR to shoot some HDR...

I also wanted to process these two ways. One I used photomatix to merge my brackets and the other I manually blended the layers in photoshop. I got very similar results. I do not care for the photoshop hdr pro merge in itself thus why I decided to blend the images myself using layer masks and blending modes. I have done it a handful of times and with varying results. I remember this past week I posted a few methods I do to create HDR and I just wanted to show what was possible using photoshop without photomatix.

First is the Photomatix version.

Second is Photoshop version (no tonemapping but I did use some filters in nik color effects to help achieve this look).
