Since buying this book and carefully reading it, I have been able to produce excellent results. There is a lot of information in this book so, I know that I still have a long way to go to become more proficient in HDR. But, this book is very helpful and thorough in it's approach so, I know I will have a good resource along the way. As for the other books? If you want to explore the author's mindset, be careful of what you buy. If you want to explore HDR then, this is the place to start.
