Tesla coils are super cool. But while most of us will only encounter the archaic contraptions in museums, if you’ve got some pluck, you can use a portable version to generate your own lightning storms at home.

Cool! 
What’s better then a monster machine? A meta machine. Here are a bunch of machines that really took the advice “Just do you!” to heart.

These Photos Will Make You Want to Drop Everything and Explore the World
Nicholas Roemmelt’s photography is enough to make any person whose day job involves a computer and a desk question his or her life choices. In addition to shooting just plain stunning photos of nature, he sometimes makes us extra envious of his adventures by adding himself or his wife to a jaw-droppingly beautiful landscape.

Provide two samples - as you can see, the new LR6 HDR is just meh. The Photomatix sample is created from a typical hello world HDR tutorial setting.

One thing to remember is that Photomatix contains both the HDR blending plus the tone mapping all in one "preset" - thus why you have lots of adjustment settings in the GUI pane to adjust all sorts of tone mapping settings.
The LR module is just the HDR blending part - no actual tone mapping happens at all - you just get a 16bit extended dynamic range TIF RAW file which you then have to manually "tone map" in ACR (LR's develop module).
To be honest for me I definitely prefer the second image (not sure which package it's from but I presume it's the LR one since the other looks "photomatix'd") - it looks much more natural and realistic as a starting point and then you can PP love it afterwards to taste.
