    Below are three images shot from my Phantom 3 Standard from a stationary position. You can see a fairly dramatic difference w/ the "aurorahdr" file, which is post-processed with Aurora HDR Pro app using the "Realistic" setting based on AEB raw 5 photos, D-log, and custom style of -2, -3, -2.

    Thought this might be useful for people to compare the results from the three options. Happy to share more info on the post processing if desired.

    Just my personal preference but I shoot everything in either 3-shot AEB or 5-shot AEB and then do post processing to combine and enhance the image to it's fullest extent.

    Great comparison.

    FYI Lightroom has a simple control-H to combine any images as an HDR, alignment and tone merging too. Also has a settable strength for 'ghosting'. basically looks for differences in a small mask and chooses one image for that tiny area so you don't have a car 3 times in the shot, or blurry trees blowing in the wind. Works great IMO.

    Yea I liked the idea of lightroom but didn't want to pay monthly for the software. Aurora is proving to be very easy to use as well.
