HDRsoft?

So I just got CS4, and I'm starting to explore the art of HDR. I've downloaded Photomatix Pro, but before I pay for the non-trial version, I'd like to know if there's any software anybody else recommends.

EDIT: Ended up buying it.

For kicks and giggles, I'll show off a shot I took yesterday with my new 10-22 lens that I HDR-ed. I think it turned out decently.

Tripod and bracket. I've played with lots of settings, but I think I usually use +/- full stop, 3 frame bracket.

I haven't paid for the HDR software in Photomatix. The last go-round I thought I used Photoshop?

I'm not a noob and I'm all about easy. Tone mapping is the real difference maker.

I concur. Tone mapping is really simple in Photomatix, and that makes me happy. It's just a matter of shooting the proper exposures.
