    Photomatix Pro was an early market leader and it's definitely the dominant player in the field.

    I'm finding that I prefer HDR Efex Pro though, at least for more realistic renderings. It creates HDR images that don't appear to be HDR.

    Photomatix can do that too, but what it's best at is shots like this one: It's over-saturated and looks a bit radioactive, but sometimes that's what folks want in an HDR. If that's what you have in mind, Photomatix will easily do it.

    I don't like what it does to the sky, or how the color and light changes around the edges. You can, of course, adjust all of that, but HDR Efex has a lot of presets that help you start off close to what you want the result to be.

    You can compare the original and the HDR Efex Pro versions here:

    Depending on the effect you're looking for, you may prefer one over the other.

    I'd recommend this HDR software https://aurorahdr.com/. If you need any help with it, there are lot of tutorials on the very website or simply send me a message.
