I have to say my favorite HDR tone mapping choice in Photomatrix Pro is the painterly effect. If my image set is well-exposed, all I have to do in Photomatrix is select Painterly and I’m done.
This brings to mind Photoshop HDR Pro. I think the two are very different. HDR Pro ends up being more labor-intensive with not all that great results.
I favor Photomatrix because it’s easy navigation and platform, not to mention the number of choices you have for tone mapping.
Either program isn’t perfect, and I still find myself tweaking ACR (Adobe Camera Raw). Anyone out there have a favorite HDR processing program. Let me know which you like best by commenting below.by
