I've been using Aurora HDR 2018
for a while now, and
when used properly (ie sparingly) I've been really rather impressed by
the results possible from it. This photo, for example, was merged
from 3 images taken at different exposures (exposing for the buildings
and sky). Although good results are also possible to obtain from
However, don't take my word for it, download the
free trail version for yourself and give it a go.
