A new one from last weekend. This one has 18+ stops of DR.

This one is great. Great handling of the range, without the oversaturation that I think many of these type of shots normally get. How and where can you see the DR range (since you mention 18+)?
Thanks for the compliments. I guess I shouldn't really say 18 stops of DR because it is actually probably more than that, but I can say 18 stops of EV because i know that I bracketed 7 shots at 3 ev spacing per shot. -9,-6,-3,0,+3,+6,+9, and -9to+9 would 18 stops. As for software, photomatix and photoshop.
I'm curious if you wouldn't mind going into a bit more detail.
I was looking mostly before at things like photomatix and other apps...to do HDR...that just basically overlaid the images...and you had some basic controls on how to blend them over the whole image...but not in targeted areas.
I've seen a tutorial on youtube..showing one guy that used photoshop...and he was taking each image of the HDR bracket set...and making each one into layers I think...and that way..was kind of 'painting' them into the main image...for instance I'd say he would have done that to regulate the light coming in from the window...but another image for the interior....with mattes and windows on each area...etc.
Is that how you use photoshop on these.....
Would you mind going into a bit more detail of your workflow on these...they really are amazing and I'd love as a noob to get some info on how you processed these.
One area I was thinking HDR would be GREAT...would be for real estate imaging...for a picture of a room...you could get the room exposure right, and 'fix' overblown lights from the window in a targeted manner...etc.
Thanks in advance,
