Nik HDR Efex Pro2

I’ve been a fan of HDR for a while. Some of it overcooked, some of it much more natural looking. My taste varies quite a bit depending on the scene I’m looking at. 

Recently I picked up this piece of software and have been really enjoying it. I previously used Photomatix, which is still great, but I really enjoy the layout and control in HDR Efex. It’s a much more comfortable layout and control for me.  This is likely due to being a big fan of the other Nik Software, Color Efex, Silver Efex etc..

Here’s a great little article with images to download if you wanted to trial out exactly what this gentleman did.

Below you can see an image I processed using this software in combination with Lightroom4.
