On the left side on the bottom row, you see the result of merging those shots into a 32-bit HDR and subsequent tone-mapping using the detail enhancer option of Photomatix Pro 4.1. And finally, the right side of the bottom row shows the final image after a number of post-processing steps executed in Photoshop CS4.
