I still haven’t bought Photomatix, so these are still watermarked, but I’m still just exploring what’s possible. I don’t think I’m going to like how HDR landscapes look, but architectural shots can look great. Vivid colours really jump out too.
Gosh, watermarks are really horrible. I can’t believe people willingly do this to their own photographs.
Have you tried Luminance HDR? (used to be called Qtpfsgui so good name change!) itsnto as easy to use as Photomatix but is freeware so no horrible water marks
