^^^ what she said. The photomatix demo is free. There is a bit of a learning curve and a couple of important steps so allow your self some time.

Also FYI most of the best effects are technically called 'tone mapping' not hdr.

A lot of HDR is stylized and eye-catching, but unrealistic.

Go easy on the processing or you'll wind up with shots like this one I took of Mammatus Clouds

I prefer shots like these other ones I also took with my beloved $100 Canon SD1000:


Much more realistic and fulfilling of the promise of HDR capturing the dynamic range of one's eye.
