This was a good two hours of editing. I’m 90% there with liking the final image but I went through like 5 iterations before getting input from a friend who selected the final image you see. Working in HDR has been a steep learning curve. From shooting to post-processing the images. This image was done in Nik HDR which I found easier to use than Photomatix. Then I ran in through MacPhun Intensify. Finally I did some brushing and gradients in Lightroom and final edits in Photoshop.
