I have recently tried my first HDRs, and so far, there is only one keeper
(http://www.flickr.com/photos/lukaswerth/8163211738/in/photostream).
For the other pictures, I got better results using only one of the exposure series.
The one I uploaded to Flickr was made from only two exposures (out of a series of five). I tried more, but the picture gets blocked up.
I use photoshop 5; do you think other software is better at this?

UPDATE: I tried the instructions by Don Menges (sticky at the top of this forum), that is, changing the layer light and lifting the curve, and they worked wonderful. Thank you, Don, should have read them before.
Other parts of my question remains: 1) do you think there is software better than photoshop, 2) can it really be an advantage to blend more than two pictures?
