Thanks. I'll share with you what my workflow is now, but I should point out that it's based heavily on Trey Ratcliff's tutorial over at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/hdr-tutoria/. I have a G3 now, and I set it to auto bracket 7 shots at +/- 1EV. I shoot RAW, and because I hate noise I take all the shots into Topaz Labs DeNoise. Sometimes I'll just take the under exposed shots, depends on the shots. After that I send them to Photomatix detail enhance. I never use Photomatix's presets, and would discourage anyone from using them also. Take the time to learn the sliders so you don't get overcooked photos. After I get a suitable image from Photomatix the photo goes to Topaz Labs Adjust and/or Detail to give it that oomph. It's kind of an involved process, but I get results I'm happy with.
