I have been trying out the Aurora HDR 2019 software package (aff link: https://trav.to/aurorahdr2019) for a few days now and have been trying to be as analytical as possible. This is a single image I took from the roof of a Melbourne building using a Nikon D610 with 24-120mm @ 40mm, f/14 & 1/400 seconds. I put the same image through both the 2018 version of Aurora HDR (right) and the 2019 version of Aurora HDR (Left). I prefer the newer version personally, these are not tweaked other than 100% cityscape preset so I am sure they could be made better.
