I'm continually impressed by LR Photomerge HDR processing. It's ability to bring out a reasonable photo without that typical HDR look is something I'm utilizing more & more and it's so damn easy. Here's and example of what I'm talking about. I wanted to do a photo of our Xmas lights for Facebook etc. I wasn't looking for exhibition quality, just something for the rellies. The risk with sort of shot is overof the lights so I decided to bracket the shot and then combine. I was going to use PS but I thought I'd give LR a go just see what it could do. Below are the three bracketed shots along with the final result, which has a little additional tweaking. All in all I think it past muster so I didn't worry about PS.
