HDR on Linux

I am playing with some HDR (High Dynamic Range) images on my Linux workstation.

This is not too exciting so far but it is my first attempt. Ultimately I used two exposures for this to get try to capture the highlights and the contrast in a single image.

I shot this in the field as 5 different images that are bracketed since I have not played with these HDR software packages. This initial image was made with "fotoxx".  I converted the raw images into Tiffs and then merged the tiffs. 

When time permits I would like to try this same photo with a couple of different software packages so that I can compare the results. Clearly the HDR approach helps take a noon image and make into something this is bit more appealing.

This image was captured in the area between Iron River, Wi and Port Wing, Wi.
