Hey Merfman. I already commented once on this question, but I misunderstood what you meant by Essentials. I wasn't aware Photomatix also had a version of their HDR software called Essentials. From this link http://www.hdrsoft.com/order/features_compare.html
you can compare the two price levels and decide what will work for you. I have never used the Photomatix Essentials, but would definitely miss some of the features of the Pro version, especially the Lightroom plugin and the manual selective de-ghosting tool.
