That first pic should be made into a jigsaw. Not surreal...but super-real. Very nice!

I think the folk up that way deserve credit for maintaining those fine old buildings to such a standard considering it is not one of the more prosperous areas and also the place took a hell of a beating in the civil war.

A lot of it is what is known as Mudejar architecture - the Mudejars were Moors who submitted to Christian rule in Spain

Mitzy will tell us when he's online, I'm sure.
Probably the most popular and recommended is Photomatix, although Photoshop does a reasonable job. I don't use HDR a lot, although I did a series of photos on church interiors and it's good for recovering shadow areas. I have been using a freebie for some time, Oloneo Photo Engine, which I quite like, but like all free beta programmes, they start charging eventually. Now as I'm a "valued long, term user" they are prepared to give me a discount and only charge me around £95! I'd need to do a lot more HDR than I do to pay that. It's quite a good product though.

So the new road from close to Valencia past Teruel and Zaragoza to the North is appropriately called the Autovia Mudejar.

Thanks for the info. I have tried one or two (not those suggested) but the results are quite awful.

I've seen some of those! I'm not a big fan of HDR tbh, unless it's subtly done. It has it's uses, but IMHO, less is more where HDR is concerned, the best HDR shots for me, are those you don't even realise they are HDR. In a forum I visit, a guy there gives talks and presentations on HDR and he's good, and he has challenged members to pick out which photos are HDR and which aren't. I don't know what you have tried (freebies?) but try Photomatix, you can use it for free (it leaves a watermark) but at least it'll give you a feel for it, try before you buy! Do a search, there are loads of tutorials on using HDR. But be warned, it's a bit like Marmite, people seem to be divided into two different camps.

Bad HDR!

Cnet.co.uk has one or two free HDR downloads.

I used Photomatix.

You have to be thoughtful about it because HDR has a tendency to make pictures look unreal if you push it too far. As was said earlier, less is more, however sometimes you are trying to create that unreal feeling

However you can create HDR pictures using three shots that dont look as if they have been touched. This visit was an experiment, it's not normally the way I shoot photos ... and frighteningly all the shots were taken hand held. When you consider you are trying to splice together three pictures, I'm surprised it worked. There is a ghosting function in Photomatix where if you have someone walking on your photo, you can put right any blur.
