Blending exposures as Layers
I have multiple exposures of the same photo that I'd like to combine into one image showing the specific details of all. I've been messing around with layer modes and opacity sliders but can't quite get exactly what I want.
These are a a couple of the images I'm trying to combine:
[Image: IMGP3518.jpg?t=1304368700]
[Image: IMGP3523.jpg?t=1304368927]
What I'd like the final image to show is the pronounced shadow behind the railing in the first exposure and the lit up details of the hallway in the lower left corner of the second exposure, and I'm wondering if there's a way to achieve this without having to draw layer masks and such.

RE: Blending exposures as Layers
There is an "exposure blend" script for Gimp somewhere. Otherwise what you want to do is usually solved by HDR techniques (look at qtpfsgui for an opensource software). Some HDR is ugly, but that's because the authors are cranking up the sliders.
