    Hi, can anyone recommend a good HDR software or even an ipad app? Wouldn't mind giving it a go. Thanks.

    I use Photomatix that's pretty good.

    You should get NIK software. You can purchase a bundle software from them which is very good. You can also get a 15 day free download to try the bundled software. Extremely recommended.

    oloneo or photomatix

    there are lots though

    oloneo is one of the faster ones - seems very responsive to use

    HDR EFEX by NIK is very creative but seems a very slow program - you probably need a very powerful computer to make the experience pleasurable....

    Another vote for Oloneo

    I must confess Photomatix is pretty darned good. As Ade said plenty to consider.

    I have Oloneo, Nik HDR Pro and Photomatix Pro. Oloneo is the fastest and easiest to use but Nik has the advantage of control points which allow local adjustments For most HDR sets I use Oloneo but for more challenging cases I use Nik. I have not used Photomatix for some time as it is the oldest and has some serious problems. Frequently the final saved images are slightly fuzzy which does not happen with Oloneo or Nik. Photomatix suggest that it is because the image that you see on the screen prior to final saving is an approximation so it is easy to choose settings which look OK but are not when finally saved. There are many posts on the internet about this problem.

    If you are happy to spend some money and probably would not buy both Oloneo and Nik, I would recommend buying the Nik suite from Google as the other Plug-ins (particularly Silver Efex ) are very good.

    jsut one caveat to bear in mind....

    if you should ever need to "batch process" 1000 images (for some strange reason... I do it all the time, but am strange) you will need Photomatix/Oloneo instead of HDER EFEX. I don't conclusively know, but HDR didn't do batch when I tried it.
