i was experimenting with HDR imaging recently, and came up with 4 different renderings of the same image. its clear I need to learn how to control Photomatix Pro! But in the end I was able to get a more interesting and realistic rendering using PSCS4 and the Local Adaptation conversion.

- install the 'latest' Epson drivers and the 'common updater' found for the printer. ( see http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportSnowLeopard.jsp)
- using System Preferences: Print & Fax panel, delete the existing Epson printer defined there.
- in the Print & Fax panel, add a new printer - select the Epson printer (already connected and powered up) and select the Epson driver for it.
- the old color profiles are in /Library/ColorSync/Profiles, yet for some reason InDesign only wants to read them from /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Color/Profiles. One way to fix this is simply to copy the profiles you want into the Adobe folder. (Another way that may work is to put an alias or a symlink to the ColorSync directory. )

I've been experimenting with HDR photography lately, and one foggy morning I used it to attempt an image I had seen for awhile but had never quite captured - the autumn yellow of the big leaf maple in a conifer forest. This particular morning the fog was just starting to burn through the top of the forest, and gave me enough glow to work with.
