2 images is usually not enough, particularly of the scenes you are shooting because your dynamic range is very large. You have blown out highlights in the door and have shadow areas which still lack detail. Looks like you need more exposures and better processing before you can make a true judgement if HDR will work within your workflow.

True enough. I am going to test this as soon as I can. I was personally happy about the shadows as they appeared on my screen (dark, but no blacks, containing all the details), but when I got printed out one of the pictures,the tonal range was considerably less than that on the screen. I certainly need to put in work here. But what I have been experimenting with, and what I do find interesting, is the exposure stacking technique using the enfuse algorithm in comparison to HDR.
