Hopefully you can get a sense from this article just how powerful HDR Efex Pro can be, and the creative flexibility it provides for modifying specific regions of your pictures, as well as applying a range of global adjustments and HDR processing options.

While sometimes I use HDR apps like Photomatix 4.1 to get exactly the look I’m going for, many times HDR Efex Pro does a great job. I hope you’ll download the demo and let Nik know what you think, as well.
