    If I use exposure bracketing how do I combine the images in post production?

    I'm using Lightroom 4 on trial to see if it is any good and if I can use it for the level I am at. But if anyone else can tell me an easy program to understand and use then let me know Smile

    You could do worse than Photomatix which many of us use.

    Lightroom on its own wont produce HDR images. You need something like Photomatix or Nik software HDR Efex Pro

    If you don't want to spend any money, at this stage, then there are several free HDR software packages. Picturenaut is quite good.

    Dont dismiss Photoshop CS5 or 6 I actually prefer it to Photomatix - I rarely use HDR these days, but this was using HDR in CS5 (just wish I had used another couple of images in the bracket)

    Whilst HDR is certainly one way to go, it's not the only way. You could consider blending exposures together using layers in any half decent photo editing programme. PS Elements, etc is a good way to start off. There are some free ones available, but as I am lucky enough to have PS I have never trialled any of them personally.

    Another good freeware program is Luminance HDR.

    Good point Adam( I tend to use this method and or filters these days), although can be difficult with complex shapes cutting the horizon, unless you are quite proficient with layer masks etc.

    Try the free trial of Oloneo Photo engine or SNS-HDR as well as the others above.
