I'm very excited to be able to tell you all that there is a new version of Aurora HDR Pro coming this fall. I have purchased all the major HDR products, and while none are bad, the one that I use for my own work as been Aurora HDR Pro since its release. It's newer code, it runs faster, and we have lots of latitude in how we build our images. Combining the brushes, masking, layering and opacity control makes it the most flexible and easiest to use HDR product in my opinion. There are a number of folks who poo poo HDR because they don't like how it "looks". Some folks like that surreal overcooked style, but I'm not one of them and I still do a lot of HDR work. Aurora HDR Pro gives me the control to leverage the power of HDR but also control how that power is used.
Here's what Macphun has to say;
