This is a place to share what you have learned using photomatix. To give it the oil painting look, the "comic" book look, or to just enhance your image to make it sharp, colors to pop, and give it more depth. Not all HDR images have to have the comic book look. Check out my HDR album to see what i mean. I have examples of Painterly setting, and settings I did myself to pop the colors, shadows, mid tones, and highlights.
