In addition, I discovered a new photoshop plugin, Topaz Adjust, and I got the free 30 day trial installed. Basically its an easy way to make a lot of different color and exposure adjustment to images. You can make them all HDR-ish and overdo it, but it also makes it super easy to make images have a slight pop to them. All of the following images were created using it, some with only slight adjustments, and a few with pretty intense adjustments (tho I don't think they are overdone).
A random street, this one is the heaviest use of HDR-type processing, and I'm quite pleased with it. For handheld shooting with no tripod, or for people or animals that will move between shots, I think I have found my favorite new plugin!
