I'm not so great at getting to natural looking results with normal HDR, but what I was getting at was that Photoshop seems to start from a natural look and I have to push the image all over the place to give it more of an hdr look (increasing shadows way, way up, for instance, then cranking on clarity).

That's good to hear. I don't use Photoshop much myself (except occasionally with a very old version, 2.0, of Photoshop Elements), but I have understood that this is an area where the program is quite capable these days.

Of course enfuse/enblend is a couple dollars and works very well for both aligning and blending. I think one of the main advantages of Photoshop is better "ghost" control. But I've also had sunsets with photoshop that just did not turn out right in the highlights. Hard to find perfect for all situations.

The only control you have over ghosting with LR/Enfuse is that you can turn the "hard-mask" option on to have the program use only a distinct input image for a certain part of the scene.
