Default What is a good software for HDR?

cheaper the better, just need the basics, nothing fancy, user friendly. Will be using it for some real estate photos.

Default I quite like DPHDR (Dynamic Photo HDR) lately ...

I use both DPHDR and Photomatix Pro, which I'd been using for some time, and find images coming out of DPHDR are often superior. It's half the price too $55 vs $99).

Default 2nd..

I used a trial of both and tend to lean towards DPHDR.

Default Good to know.

I paid $49 for it some time ago and have had free upgrades to the current version ... but it is listed at $99.

I think DPHDR had some deal going as well (I only remember paying $45 for it a few months ago).

Default I like the interface better and think it easier to do Tone Mapping than Photomaitx ...

Photomatix is very good for realistic/photographic results, but there's a learning curve. DPHDR is good for stylistic images which can be toned down or made more realistic/photographic quite easily. Still some quirks and a learning curve, but I'm finding myself using it more and more while not even opening Photomatix.

And, FWIW, all of my HDRs are finished in CS3 and many include some blending with either the baseline (0EV) or select exposures as part of the overall post processing.
