I have been thinking of getting Photomax to try some HDR but to be honest its not really something I am interested in enough to buy Photoshop CS3 or 4. Maybe Nik filters will come up with a HDR plug in for NX2 now that would make me happy.
But this is good info Jon and I love your HDR stuff.
Jim; If you wanted to do HDR, you do not need CS3, you can get Photomatrix PRO as a stand alone for about $89.
Photography: 100 percent art, 100 percent technical. It takes a photographer to blend them into an image.

HDR can now be done in LightRoom CC and also in Photoshop CC. I have Photomatix Pro and use it very little now. I do not use Photoshop CC for HDR now that you can can get it in LightRoom CC. Think about it for a moment. Now you can take 9 separate shots and convert them into a HDR Panorama. Adobe engineers recommend that you only need to take 3 separate shots with an F stop difference of 2. Convert that and each into an HDR and then combine the HDR shots into a Panorama HDR. Pretty cool!
