HDR Expose 2 vs. HDR Efex Pro 2

 I have detailed before in one of my blog (, how I generated the above image using HDR Expose 2 from five images: -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, and white balance the resulting HDR image in Photoshop using one more image lighted by a flash.  HDR Expose 2 has a different way of generating HDR image, which is quite good and interesting.  Although I have further adjusted the image in Capture NX2, it seems the resulting image still lack a little "punch" that we normally see in HDR image.  In a way, it is very good and looks like a normal photograph!

I did the whole thing again now using HDR Efex Pro in Photoshop CS6.  I also did the white balance for the interior as described before using an image lighted by flash.  This time I have been able to generate an image with more "Punch", more detail contrast, better reflection from the floor, etc.
