I  just found out that LR6/CC's latest update has added an HDR Merge function and it's pretty neat.  All the work is non-destructive and it's all done in LR.  And it looks like it's all natural, no tone mapping which is great for commercial and real estate stuff.  Here's 3 shots merged in LR's HDR function.  This is from a restaurant shoot I did a couple months ago.

True, David. This capability was added to Lightroom CC last year (I believe in April). An excellent, natural looking HDR,

WoW!

There's something about HDR done well that makes you want to keep looking into the photograph.

 

I'm trying to read the labels on the booze bottles at the moment,  (which probably says more about me that your excellent picture)...

Thanks

Rod

Well, it shows you how far behind the curve I am concerning upgrades. :D Regardless, it's a great addition.  The above shot was taken from what I had left over from an earlier shoot.  I normally blend 7 shots to achieve the dynamic range, but I only had these three.  Still, it came out nicely.  FYI, it was a 5DIII, Canon 16-35 f4L, and I think it was shot at f11 and ISO100.  Of course, on a tripod and an remote shutter release.  And the best part, after blending, it took me about 5 minutes to finish up the processing. :)

One other thing to add more about LR than the shot itself; it was shot at 16mm so it naturally had those "sloped" corners for lack of a better term.  Clicking the "Auto" function in Lens Correction, to this day, just amazes me at how well it can straighten out a shot.  Sure makes our processing life simpler.

very nice! the color cast looks a bit off though.  it looks like the seats and tables look reddish? was that a result of the hdr merge or was it just because of mixed ambient lighting?>

That was my lack of post time spent with the image.  Here's one of the shots that they are using for a brochure.  The color is a bit more realistic since I spent a bit more time in post with it.

Not the same room, but the basic color scheme is the same.

This looks more realistic than the first shot. I like the colors much better, especially the furniture.
