I'm not that into HDR, because a lot of the images look like color vomit.
HDR itself is not the problem, it's the tone mapping that happens afterwards as it seems.
Then I stumbled upon this:Shooting and creating photo real HDR
So with the 32bit workflow in PS, things look good. As if you just boosted the dynamic range of the camera.
And there are no new dials or sliders to think about, because you edit the photo in LR just like any other photo.
All good, except it uses PS.
Now I did a quick search and apparently there are plugins for LR to do the 32bit blending.http://www.hdrsoft.com/download/merge_lrplugin.html
I didn't try them, but if it works it eliminates the need for PS.
There is a thread about HDR with sample images of different workflows, but I couldn't manage to find it, just the video.
